Tace il vento

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Tace il vento in ciel sereno
Scorre placida la luna,
lieve, lieve all'onda in seno
l'aura invispa la Laguna.
Voga, muovi dalla sponda;
batti l'onda o marinar.

Scenda il nembo, e la procella
Sciogli l'inno dell'amore.
Va, t'affretta, la tua bella
Pensa a te con ansio core.
Voga, voga, batti l'onda,
Va alla sponda, o marinar.

Sorgi lesta dalle piume
Dove posi, o giovinetta,
della luna al mesto lume:
è l'amante che ti aspetta.
Voga, voga, batti l'onda
Va alla sponda, o marinar.
