O falce di luna calante

Language: Italian (Italiano)

O falce di luna calante
che brilli su l'acque deserte,
o falce d'argento, qual mèsse di sogni
ondeggia a 'l tuo mite chiarore qua giù!

Aneliti brevi di foglie
di fiori di flutti da 'l bosco
esalano a 'l mare: non canto, non grido,
non suono pe 'l vasto silenzio va.

Oppresso d'amor, di piacere,
il popol de' vivi s'addorme.
O falce calante, qual mèsse di sogni
ondeggia a 'l tuo mite chiarore qua giù!
