Florence on the Elbe, Dresden in Bloom.

They gave the city a name,
one so graciously given
the residents get to live in eternal splendor.
Within the old town quarters.
Tales of Saxony ensues ever after.  Civilizations bloom and wilt,
Dynasties rise and fall.
Stories after stories are told.

Dresden resembles that of a benign aristocrat.
By Lady Elbe's cordial invite.
Tempted by two bona fide friends with foreign titles
"Semperope and Zwinger", you say?
It's an invitation I shall humbly accept.

Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Continuing my noel adventures,
I wandered to picturesque Rothenburg on December 25th.
Another of the many idyllic and quaint old towns you tend to find in Germany.

I am quite fond of observing people and passersby.
Families and friends congregated in front of coffee shops and bakery,
most of them with smiles on their faces and words of holiday greeting filled the air.
Dressed in their winter attires, adults accompanied by kids and pet hounds.

Toasty, gossamer white smoke making it's way up the chimneys.
Shop windows exquisitely decorated to beauty pageant level.
In screaming colors, desperately for an audience.
Well, the attempt to catch my attention was certainly a success,
as I sure as hell don't know where to look.
Dazzling tinsels, snowflakes in snowglobes, antique toys, and nutcrackers,
and then there's the occasional resounding church bell.
Rothenberg is a giant jubilant Christmas festivity.

TIl next time, xx Marina
