You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Caro m’è ’l sonno, e più l’esser di sasso,
mentre che ’l danno e la vergogna dura;
non veder, non sentir m’è gran ventura;
però non mi destar, deh, parla basso.

Amor, la tuo beltà non è mortale:
nessun volto fra noi è che pareggi
l’immagine del cor, che ’nfiammi e reggi
con altro foco e muovi con altr’ale.

Arder sole’ nel freddo ghiaccio il foco;
or m’è l’ardente foco un freddo ghiaccio,
disciolto, Amor, [quello insolubil laccio]1,
e morte or m’è, che m’era festa e gioco.
  Quel primo amor che ne diè tempo e loco,
nella strema miseria è greve impaccio
a l’alma stanca...
