from Venezia to Maribor
Villa Oscente
(on traveling by train from Venezia to Maribor)

Rattle along, oh Ferrovia bella,
this Adriatic train song
“Clickety Clack” acappella

The marble valleys
the railway valleys
along the Azure Sea

From Trieste and back
these coastal tracks

and the pine trees reach
from clifftop to beach,

“benvenuto, ma bella landscape vista,
greetings and dobro dan, Slovenija.”
