Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Beauty is best admired from a distance.
A vapourware cathedral in the heart of Barcelona,
Gothic mason towers looming pitch-black over Praha,
A labyrinth of hedges by a palace in Vienna,
Stone-hewn monuments and streets of marble in Valletta;
All this and more, you are.

The English garden blooming verdant in the heart of Munich,
Smooth rocks on the beach outside a hotel room in Nice,
Mazes of water running through Amsterdam and Venice,
The shimmer of the Seine under the bridges in Paris;
All this and more, you are.

Old castles that dot the riverbanks of the Ljubljanica,
Terraces perched high atop the cat-ruled streets of Gzira,
A city carved in cliffsides by the shores of Monte Carlo,
The archipelagos of Stockholm, Helsinki, and Oslo;
All this and more, you are.

Never have I feared
To tell just how I feel.
Stunned and bewildered,
I'm head over heel.

Never have I feared
These words of mine turn real,
Yet now, Hell is empty,
And all devils are here.
