Apri gli occhi, Tancredi, a queste...

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Apri gli occhi, Tancredi, a queste estreme
[Esequie, grida]1, ch'io ti fo col pianto;
Riguarda me, che vo' venirne insieme
La lunga strada, e vo' morirti accanto.
Riguarda me; non ten fuggir sì presto:
L'ultimo [don]2, ch'io ti dimando, è questo.

Translation(s): GER
