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 May 6, we are $2,380 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Gite, o giorni dolenti

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Gite, o giorni dolenti,
che succedano al pianto
gioie, allegrezze e canto,
scherzi, vezzi e contenti.

Fra le trombe di Marte
e tra i rumor di strepitosa guerra
dal ciel festoso parte
e scende il nume delle nozze in. terra.

Volano gl'imenei, corron gli amori
di voi Giovi terreni
a rallegrare i cori,
a congiunger i seni.

Vada con pie' fugace
a rinserrarsi entr'un orrore eterno
la discordia d'inferno
e rieda omai la sospirata pace.

Coronata di ulivo Astrea ritorni,
che posi il mondo posi e fiera porti
le rovine e le morti
Megera ove di fede il mondo è privo.

Felicissimi giorni
di secoli migliori
saran principi grati
questi nodi beati.

L'Austria all'Austria con questa
amorosa vicenda
saldamente s'innesta,
onde la virtù renda
colmi alfin di vittorie e di trofei
gli austriaci Semidei.

E quali aver mai lice
di bella età felice
argomenti più giusti
che le Muse a gradir tornin gli Augusti?
