Non ti voglio amar

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Amar non mi vuoi più, -ma come mai
sfioro, pur a caso, la tua man,
provi una scossa, e pallido ti fai
solo ch'io ti rigardi da lontan?

Perchè, sia che a la chiesa o a spasso io vada,
t'incontro ad ogni svolta? di'perchè
sempre piantato làggiù ne la strada
con quelli occhioni tuoi rivolti a me?

Bimbolo se un guardo, solo ti rivolgessi
di quelli, sai? che ti facean gelar:
se una sola parola io ripetessi,
diresti ancora: non ti volio amar?
