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!

L'amante consolato

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Son tanto ito cercando
che pur alfin trovai
colei che desiai
duramente penando,
Oh questa volta sì ch'io non m'inganno,
s'io non godo mio danno!

Son tali quei contenti
che pur alfin io provo
che tutto mi rinovo
doppo lunghi tormenti.
Ma tutti com'io fo far non sapranno
chi non gode suo danno.

L'amant consolé

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

J'ai cherché si longtemps
qu'à la fin j'ai trouvé
celle que je désirais
en souffrant durement.
Oh, cette fois, que je ne me trompe pas,
que je ne me réjouisse pas à mon détriment.

Ces délices sont tels,
ceux que je ressens enfin,
que tout est renouvelé en moi
après de longs tourments.
mais tous ne peuvent pas faire comme moi 
eux qui ne peuvent se réjouir de leur chute.
