    It cost me nothing but a limp
    Upon the listless eyes of Florence,
    No break of darkness at the break of dawn
    Above the shying domes of grotesque,
    Entombed in chequered stone.

    No rasping breathing of the ages
    Upon my paled cheek in red,
    No galling strain of godly pallor
    Of humid galleries on edge.

    Arcades have dimmed their
    Stately crumbling features,
    A decoy for embittered sense
    That love has dropped,
    Blindsided, on the blinded preachers
    With folded arms
    Of indignant offense.

      i'm probably way off...italy, a place for lovers...yet it seems the speaker is indicating the love borne there ended up being ephemeral and painful...

    bad memories...."no break of darkness at dawn"

    the imagery is just a bit off...don't mean that negatively..i mean what could almost be beautiful is just slightly off in some uneasy, grotesque way.
