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!

Chi brama in amore

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Chi brama in amore
far paghi i desiri,
nel centro del core
non chiuda i martiri.
Con note sonore,
con voci che strida
all'empia omicida,
sue pene distingua.
Pietà non manca
ad amator ch'ha lingua.

S'aviene ch'un dardo
il core t'impiaghe,
non copra le piaghe
silenzio codardo,
discopra non tardo
le fresche ferite
chi brama guarite
le pene dei core.
Per amante ch'è muto
è sordo Amore.

Celui qui désire ardemment en amour

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

Celui qui désire ardemment en amour,
pour satisfaire  ses désirs,
que dans le centre de son cœur
il n'enferme pas sa souffrance.
Avec des notes sonores,
avec une voix qui crie
qu'à l'impie meurtrière
il montre sa peine.
La pitié ne manque pas
pour l'amant qui a une langue.

S'il arrive qu'une flèche
blesse ton cœur,
ne recouvre pas la plaie
d'un silence lâche.
Qu'il découvre sans tarder 
la blessure fraîche
celui qui désire guérir
les peines du cœur.
Pour un amant qui est muet,
l'amour est sourd.
