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!

La riamata da chi amava

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Dormi, o mio dolore,
addormentati, o mia pena,
i sospiri ei pianti affrena,
posa in stabil core.
Pace datevi, o speranze,
acquietatevi, o desiri,
dilungatevi, o martiri,
in eterne lontananze.
Ciego duol mi affliggi a torto,
ch'alle gioie Amor mi vuole
e mi rende il mio bel Sole,
la mia vita, il mio conforto.
Alma mia, riedi a godere
che desir con tanto affetto,
corri, o core, al cor diletto,
torna al ben, torna al piacere,
alma mia, torna al godere

Dors, ô ma douleur

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

Dors, ô ma douleur,
Endors-toi, ô ma peine,
retiens soupirs et cris,
repose dans un cœur paisible.
Soyez en paix, ô espoirs,
calmez-vous, ô désirs,
éloignez-vous, ô tourments,
à une distance éternelle.
Une peine aveugle m'afflige à tort,
car l'amour voulait me réjouir
et me donner mon beau soleil,
ma vie et mon réconfort.
Mon âme, reviens pour réjouir
celui que tu désires avec tant d'affection,
cours, ô mon cœur, vers le cœur chéri,
retourne au bien, retourne au plaisir,
mon âme, retourne au délice.
