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!

Per questa bella mano

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Per questa bella mano,
Per questi vaghi rai
Giuro, mio ben, che mai
Non amerò che te.
L'aure, le piante, i sassi,
Che i miei sospir ben sanno,
A te qual sia diranno
La mia costante fé.
Volgi lieti o fieri sguardi,
Dimmi pur che m'odi o m'ami,
Sempre acceso ai dolci dardi,
Sempre tuo vo' che mi chiami,
Né cangiar può terra o cielo
Quel desio che vive in me.

Pour cette belle main

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

Pour cette belle main,
Pour ces adorables yeux,
Je jure, ma chère, que jamais
Je n'aimerai une autre que toi.
La brise, les plantes et les pierres
Qui connaissent bien mes soupirs
Te diront quelle est
Ma fidélité constante.
Tourne vers moi des regards heureux ou hautains,
Selon que tu me hais ou que tu m'aimes,
Toujours je brûle de tes douces flèches,
Toujours c'est ta voix qui m'appelle,
Ni le ciel ni la terre ne peuvent changer
Le désir qui vit en moi.
