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 April 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

O sia tranquillo il mare o pien...

Language: Italian (Italiano)

O sia tranquillo il mare o pien d'orgoglio,
mai da quest' onde io rivolgo il piede;
io qui t'aspetto e qui de la tua fede,
tradito amante, mi lamento e doglio.

Spesso salir su queste rupi io soglio
per veder se il tuo legno ancor sen riede;
quivi m'assido e piango, ondo mi crede
il mar un fonte e 'l navigante un scoglio.

E spesso ancor t'invio per messageri,
a ridir la mia pena e 'l mio tormento
dell'aria vaga e zeffiri leggieri,
ma tu non torni, o Filli, e 'l mio lamento
l'aura disperge, e tal mercè ne speri
che fida a donna il cor e i prieghi el vento.
