Mio Caro Fratello

Mio Caro Fratello

by Eileen

Leonardo da Vinci: Italian polymath.

Galileo Galilei: physicist, astronomer, philosopher.

Valentinus: patron saint of happy marriages, affianced couples and bee keepers.

Teodoro Laudani: saved a little lost girl.

Unless you go before me (I feel in my heart that you won't), no one will remember to attribute this to you when you die. They'll swathe your body in black and wash your face with warm water, dutifully scrub under your nails and maybe if you're lucky you'll have someone to kiss the blood from your mouth, brush closed your eyes and whisper, "Grazie, mio caro fratello."

I wish you were.
