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!

Altri canti di Marte

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Altri canti di Marte, e di sua schiera
Gli arditi assalti, e l'honorate imprese,
Le sanguigne vittorie, e le contese,
I trionfi di morte horrida, e fera.

Io canto, Amor, da questa tua guerriera
Quant'hebbi a sostener mortali offese,
Com'un guardo mi vinse, un crin mi prese:
Historia miserabile, ma vera.

Due begli occhi fur l'armi, onde traffitta
Giacque, e di sangue invece amaro pianto
Sparse lunga stagion l'anima afflitta.

Tu, per lo cui valor la palma, e'l vanto
Hebbe di me la mia nemica invitta,
Se desti morte al cor, dà vita al canto.
