Quand'io ti guardo con occhi ebbri, e...

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Quand'io ti guardo con occhi ebbri, e stanco
tu alfin sorridi, ma il tuo cor si frange;
quando ridendo tu mi stringi a 'l fianco,
ma in fondo a te grave un'angoscia piange;

un desiderio acuto di morire
m'assal con voluttà tranquilla e mesta:
vorrei porre la man su la tua testa
e te sempre adorare e benedire;

vorrei volare tra 'l baglior che scende
in pioggia d'oro su 'l deserto lito,
e per le nubi che 'l tramonto accende
dileguare con te ne l'infinito.
