Weekly Photo Challenge: Love

“If music be the food of love, play on.”  ~ Shakespeare

Whilst roaming in Rome, we were on our way to view some archaeological excavations, when I heard beautiful music and went to investigate. There under a shady tree, was a young clarinetist serenading the passersby. People dropped a few Euros into his case, as they literally danced past. An elderly Italian couple, obviously still very much in love, stayed and danced for quite a while, as he played the wonderful love song, “Besame Mucho.”

Besame, besame mucho,
Each time I cling to your kiss, I hear music divine,
Besame mucho,
Hold me my darling and say that you’ll always be mine.
This joy is something new, my arms enfolding you,
Never knew this thrill before.
Whoever thought I’ll be holding you close to me,
Whispering it’s you I adore.

They seemed oblivious to everyone except one another and the music, which obviously evoked for them, wonderful memories. I stayed and watched them dance, and I really felt the love.

  3. Always knew Italians were romantic 🙂
    Just think there is a couple out there who have no idea that the two of them are being admired by us all for their show of ‘love’ in a little square in Rome ….

  4. What a wonderful catch this photo is – so lovely! I wouldn’t mind to be asked for a dance on a little square somewhere in Italy or anywhere for that matter. Love your photo.

  5. Besame Mucho – I often heard that being sung by my father. What a romantic song to inspire people to dance right there on the streets. 🙂
    Congratulations for the win! Your photo is pretty. 🙂

  6. Now that is true romance! No, we didn’t venture to North Belize. We’ve been to Punta Gorda, Placencia, Hopkins, Mountain Pine Ridge and San Ignacio. We loved it all and saw many ruins like Caracol, Xuantunich, Lubaantun, Nim Li Punit and El Pilar. I wish I was on a new adventure as we speak. Instead of staring at snow!

  7. ‘They seemed oblivious to everyone except one another’ The very definition of love perhaps? 🙂

  8. Love that tune in all it’s guises ;-0
    That is a cool portrayal of love AD – I’ve looked through all my pics, and nothing i look at speaks to me.
    guess i’ll have some more living to do then 😉
