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!

Dolcissimi legami

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Dolcissimi legami
di parole amorose,
che mi legò da scherz'e non mi scioglie.
Così egli dunque scherz'e così coglie?
Così l'alme legate
sono ne le catene insidiose?
Almen chi sì m'allaccia
mi leg'ancor fra quelle dolci braccia.

Süße Bande

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Süße Bande
aus Liebesworten
in die er mich scherzend verstrickte und nicht mehr losließ.
Scherzt er so und überrumpelt er auf diese Weise?
Werden so die Seelen
tückisch in Ketten gefangen?
Würde doch wenigstens der, der mich so fesselt,
erneut mich in die lieben Arme schließen.
