BAY OF NAPLES
The Naples Sea, you’re amazing at night
With the Zephyr’s scarf unrolled,
When thy blue, crystal waters of light
Suffuse the moon with gold.
In a charming night how I love to float
On the dormant waves of yours,
And observe Vesuvius from a small boat
Smoke into the celestial gauze,
Or watch Naples sleep under thy caresses,
Or gaze at the lifeless Pompeii Forum,
And exchange loud busses with apsarases*
Arm in arm with thy sweet indecorum.
* Apsaras, in Hindu mythology, heavenly nymph of great
beauty, often represented as a dancer at the court of the Hindu god Indra. In
early Hindu sculptures apsarases are frequently depicted with gandharvas,
their heavenly consorts. Apsarases also appear in Buddhist art.
