Veronica Veronese

Spread the love

While chasing after her dream;
She followed the voice of Nature.
Her gown a glittering green;
Reflected her notes on paper.

As she took the bow of her violin;
The music began to flow.
Down the bustling streets of Berlin;
It soon began to snow.

Dawn of mystic creation;
The marriage of Nature and Soul.
