- ITA Italian (Italiano) (Ferdinando Albeggiani) , "Un passero solitario il suo amore lamenta", copyright © 2009, (re)printed on this website with kind permission
A widow bird sate mourning for her love
Upon a wintry bough,
The frozen wind crept on above;
The freezing stream below.
There was no leaf upon the forest bare,
No [flower]1 upon the ground
And little motion in the air,
Except the mill-wheel's sound.

Some settings use the modernized spelling "sat" instead of "sate"
