Let’s return to Monterosso
where we can meander
through terraced vineyards,
then sip wine at the cafe
on Via Verdi.

Let’s return to Vernazza
to climb the steep slopes,
ramble among olive trees,
and descend
on paths peppered with cactus.

Let’s return to Camoglia
to eavesdrop and let
the words of others
fill the silence
of the Benedictine abbey.

Let’s return to Riomaggiore,
stroll the Via dell’Amore
above the rocky sea wall
in the company of kestrels
and drink in the scent of rosemary.

Let’s return to Manarolo,
laze on the pier
like nets drying in the sun
and toss our passports into the sea.
