Scala dei Turchi

by Andrew Stein

We enjoy our Sicily’s day one
At the famous Scala dei Turchi
Where there’s much fun in the sun
And the water’s anything but murky.

Scala dei Turchi 1

With the town of Agrigento so close
These weather-formed white stairs
Makes the sun with temperature most
Much much easier to bear.

Scala dei Turchi 2

And while we sunbathe and read
Finding chalk everywhere rock touched
Slow is the only day’s speed
For this beach came through in the clutch.
