(Ciao a tutti! – Just about 4 years ago (February 20, 2015), I wrote this poem after receiving the Sanremo version of Grande Amore. It is clear I was very excited – to say the least. At the time, this post got 81 comments and something like over 500 views on the site. Marie also chose it to go into the book we gave the guys, way back when, and I felt very honored. I thought I’d post it again, just for fun. I did write a new poem for the new Musica album, that I got yesterday, which is awesome – the album by the way. However, I don’t think I could top this poem. 🙂 But I will post it as well in a few days. – Enjoy, again!)
We knew it was coming, but when would that be?
We waited, and waited, then shouted with glee!
It was coming soon, but not til after Sanremo;
How long could I last, without a new song from Il Volo?
We then heard the news, it was on Amazon.IT!
There I went with my visa, to order it quickly!
I wanted it now, so express shipping I paid;
Hoping and praying, it would not be delayed!
Three weeks and counting, how much more can I bear?
I kept watch on my email, when would it be there?
The contest had started and Il Volo appeared;
Singing their hearts out, while everyone cheered!
But on Friday the 13th, not bad luck for me,
I read in my mail; the CD would be early!
I jumped up and down, how lucky am I?
I’ll have it soon in my hands; I could just cry.
The day finally came, it was arriving today;
I waited and paced, for the delivery all day.
I tracked it online, it came straight from Milan.
On to Bergamo and Brussells, then finally MY town!
I raced home to get it, but it was not there?
DHL had not come yet – how much more could I bear?
I went to the store, to pick up my dinner.
They had til 8pm, then there was a knock at my door!
It was here, finally, at last, it was here!
I’m sorry, but I could not wait to open it, I fear.
I quickly took pictures and then opened it with care;
Staring lovingly at my hand, so wishing they were there!
I listened and listened, and listened again.
Over and over I played it, I did not want it to end.
But bedtime was coming, I so needed my sleep,
I can listen again tomorrow, for I know it will keep.
Il Volo is love, Grand Amore, to be exact!
The heck with all the critics, they are just hacks!
So listen with joy, Il Volovers everywhere;
And know that we give them our tender loving care!
