L'udir talvolta

Language: Italian (Italiano)

L'udir talvolta nominare il loco
Dove dimori, o talvolta vedere
Chi di là venga, mi riaccende il fuoco
Nel cor mancato per troppo dolere.
E par ch'io senta alcun nascoso gioco
Nell'anima legata dal piacere,
E meco dico: quindi venissi io
Onde quel viene, o dolce mio disio!...

Parfois entendre

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Parfois entendre nommer le lieu
Où tu demeures, ou parfois voir
Quelqu'un qui vient de là, cela rallume le feu
Dans mon cœur las de trop souffrir.
Et il me semble ne sentir aucun jeu secret
Dans mon âme liée au plaisir,
Et je me dis : alors je suis venu
Ici pour qu'il arrive, mon doux désir !
