33: Florentine Memories Through these old streets I wander dreamily; Around me Florence sweeps her busy tide Of life; quaint palaces on every side. Here, where I pass, perchance in former day Petrarch hath walked, composing poetry To oft-sung charms of Laura. Here hath hied Dante, of Florence now the greatest pride, | But whom, in life, she fiercely drove away, To write in gloom his epic. Here, beneath This loggia, Boccaccio hath told His laughing tales, to comrades, merrily - What wondrous memories these scenes bequeath! What artists, sculptors, painters, here of old Fashioned this lovely gem of Italy!

34: Piazza Republica

35: Moldovian Street Musicians

36: Taddeo Gaddi built me. I am old, Five centuries old. I plant my foot of stone Upon the Arno, as St. Michael's own Was planted on the dragon. Fold by fold Beneath me as it struggles, I behold Its glistening scales. Twice hath it overthrown My kindred and its companions. Me alone It moveth not, but is by me controlled. I can remember when the Medici Were driven from Florence; longer still ago The final wars of Ghibelline and Guelf, Florence adorns me with its jewelry; And when I think that Michaelangelo Has leaned on me, I glory in myself
