Small Italian Town Embraces Wind Power
from the New York Times
by C.J. Opperthauser
Brilliant stamps of innovation,
into Italian countryside. Rolling hills
breach up toward them like desperate
Mediterranean waves, a forever-passing glance
at some tall movie star.
Centuries and ten feet from the old churches
and wine-stained bars, the giants spin.
In the sun-washed town below,
a boy prays to God the clouds
can miss the slices on their float up the mountain.
