‘In fair Verona where we set our scene..’
La città dell’amore,
I came in state just like a queen
To be honoured and adored.
Clicking cameras filled my ears
Interview followed interview.
Spritz, white wine and cans of beer
Infused the remaining hours.
In danger of floating away
On the wings of romance and fame.
You took my hand each and every day,
Pulled me back down to the ground.
