Veggo tra l'ombre il varco

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Veggo tra l'ombre il varco  
dell'Acheronte oscuro;
già con nocchier m'imbarco
per la magion d'orror.
Odo una cupa voce,
che di lontan mi dice
chi sei? Son l'infelice
scherno d'un empio amor.
Un suono or dolce, e caro
d'armonici improvvisi
m'invita dagli elisi
già l'aure a respirar.
Fan tresca gli spirti amanti.
Mi acclama ogni ombra bella
ma calma senza quella
oh dio! non so trovar.
