Joy and passion about her Roma
Sees its history cast in stone
Emperors and leaders and all their work
Shared with a sense of their importance to us

Connecting all the dots
Who did what and where
Especially the art, stunning art
Explained, communicated, and shown

Painting for weary travelers
A canvas of ancient buildings and their events
Helping us belong
So that each person will see her precious Rome

Tirelessly she directs each day’s sights
Weaving through busses and streets
Explaining each church and street
Who lived here and this is who they would meet

With words of insight she shares
You realize that she really cares
That you know Rome and its truths
Presented by Carla of Rome
