They continued their Peony Gondola Dream and it was like that:
The Gondola moved soft in the evening waters of the Canale Grande and Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and felt so secure.
During their common Music Vision she felt surrounded by thousands of roses – All the Roses – All the music light roses she saw and felt in her heart!
Palmina wanted to ask Palma for the music score of this music piece and Palma could feel it.
Palma smiled. During that he remembered that today a bird sung at 4 a.m. in the morning bringing Palma a bird message, Palma stood up and looked out of the morning to listen every tweet of Palmina.
(Palmina tried to send him 3 times Messenger and he could feel and hear it).
„Here I have the music score, my Palmina, mia docissima Mia!“
Palmina feels that this music touched her heart very, very much and Palmina looked into Palma’s eyes and Palma looked also into her shining eyes.
„This evening you played so beautiful on my new lute. How do you like it? Is it a good instrument, Palmina?“
„Oh, yes, I love it. It is so nice to play on it. It is a master work – From the best lute maker from Venice…“
Palma took the instrument in his hands lifted it a little bit and said: „This lute is for you Palmina, ordered by the best lute maker of Venice, the most famous in whole Europe, from the whole World!“
„Woooh“, This is for me?“
Her eyes looked like a little deer.
„Oh, thank you! Really? Oh, Palma!
Such a good instrument! Oh, Palma! This is sure the most expensive lute in the world!?“
Palma smiled shy as if he does not know what she means and looked up to the soft evening sky over Venice.
Palmina hugged Palma like a little girl and kissed him shy and tender on his cheeks several times – and: Palma could feel it and smiled.

The next day Palma il Giovane was at the La Pieta Music School where the orphan girls waited all together in the music rehearsal and dining room.
Palma made it possible that Palmina can give music lessons for the girls as music teacher there at the music school, which is near to her family house, the bakery shop along the cale de la Peieta.
„Now, my dear angels…“, the nun said to all the orphan girls,
„…Signore Palma il Giovane, who composed for us a lot of artworks in the last years is here and he has announced that every girl who is playing or learning music instrument will get new a high quality music instrument made from the best instrument builder from the Republic of Venice!!!“
The girls looked at each other – after a moment of silence they smiled, jumped and cried of joy and luck and made a long applause for Palma il Giovane.

„Graaaaazie! Mille, mille grazie, Maestro Palma il Giovane!!!“
-„Really…we will get new instruments!!! We will be the best girls orchestra of Europe, of the whole world!“
And Palma gave a sign to Palmina to bring the music instruments builder which waited outside.
„Oh, so much new instruments, all for us…“
„This is for me, I play Cello!“
„This is for me, I play the Violin“
„and I play the Lute!
“ I play the harpsichord – oh a new harpsicord – for me!!!“
„…an Oboe for me and for you a Mandolin, look!“
„and there they bring a Viola, and all Viola da Gamba!!“
„Trumpets, Clarinets, a Mono-chord for theoretic music studies!!
„and, and this is a flute for me!!!“, a younger little girl said!
And all their cheeks get light red and all their eyes shined.
Now this seems Christmas in summer.
Palma observed like a father how the orphan girls where lucky.
The nuns where surprised by so much new music instruments and hold their hands over their open mouth and could not believe that Palma il Giovane is supporting these girls orchestra so much.
The elder superior nun whispered to her colleague:“Once we all thought Palma will adopt or marry one of our girls. Now he supports our orchestra….Last month he sponsored us a golden tablet which has the words on it:
‚THE LA PIETA GIRLS ORCHESTRA OF THE REPUBLIC OF VENICE‘
We are so lucky to have him as sponsor. Soon we will make a concert tour to Vienna, Austria with our choir and Orchestra. At the Renaissance Palais Ferstel in the 1.District“
„..Yes, but our girls are really good musicians, aren’t they?“
„And they like Palma’s compositions, so they will perform his artworks…“.
„Sometimes he is like a father, often he comes and tell to the girls good-night-stories for the girls in our rehearsal hall…
Often legends from the Life of Master Titian and his secret love the lute playing musician… she lived here in Venice…“
The older nun listened and nodded understanding.

Again at the 23 p.m. in the Gondola under the evening stars of Venice:
Palmina plays on her new lute and Palma listened very interested.
No one bought Palmina in her whole life such a beautiful and high quality music instrument not even her father.
But Palma did it. Palma il Giovane said: „I wanted to give you this Lute in the public. But we decided to make our Gondola tour…
Palmina played and Palma listened and the golden light was again between their hearts.
„…Yes…yes….I need these moments of pure music and art inspiration, Palmina. There are so much honor guests in our Palazzo…
I can not concentrate there….sometimes… because I feel so tired after the painting work…“
„…I know Palma, Often the honor guests are asking to see the famous Palma il Giovane, Mihaela said, wondering where you are…
Mihaela told them that you are working on an art inspiration…“, Palmina said with her soft voice.
„Yes, this is the truth…“
And both looked at Palma’s music score and they heard this Peony Gondola Music Vision like that:
