Pride of Sicily

The Pride of Sicily 

The rolling hills of Sicily

Wrought with a fabulous history

War and peace and misery

Yet, many rebuilt memories. 

 

Corinthian, Ionic, Doric

Jewish, Muslim and Catholic

Evolving to pleasant from hectic

One amazing and heroic epic.

 

Gelato, cappuccino, espresso too

Uniquely different to me and you

Just embrace them as they do

Enhancing life with something new.

 

Those rolling hills of Sicily

Impacted by war and serenity

Periods of fear and uncertainty

But, an endless life expectancy.

 

As strong as the wind the people stay

They live for the land in their own way

The people on the Boot stay at bay

Sicilians live proudly day after day.
