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 April 17, we are $5,700 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 renovation possible!

Come un sogno d'or
scolpito è nel core.
Il ricordo ancor 
di quell'amore che non esiste più.

Fu la sua vision
qual dolce sorriso
che più lieta fa,
col suo brillar, la nostra gioventù.

Ma fu molto breve in me
la dolcezza di quel ben... 
svanì quell bel sogno d'or
lasciando in me il dolor.

Cupo è l'avvenir,
sempre più tristi i dì... 
la gioventù passata sarà 
rimpianto mi resta sol, sì ...

Rimpianto amaro e duol' nel cuor!
Oh raggio di sole,
Sul mio cammino ahimè, non brilli più.
Mai più, mai più!
