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 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Presso un fiume tranquillo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Presso un fiume tranquillo
Disse a Filena Eurillo :
"Quante son queste arene,
Tante son le mie pene !
E quante son quelle onde,
Tante ho per te nel cor piaghe profonde !"

Rispose, d'amor piena,
Ad Eurillo Filena :
"Quante la terro ha foglie
Tante son le mie doglie !
E quante il cielo ha stelle,
Tante ho per te nel cor vive fiammelle !"

Dunque con lieto core
Soggionse indi il pastore :
"Quanti ha l'aria augelletti
Siano i nostri diletti,
E quant'hai tu bellezze,
Tante in noi versi Amor care dolcezze !"

"Si, si",  con voglie accese
L'un e l'altro riprese,
"Facciam, concordi amanti,
Pari le gioie ai pianti,
A le guerre le paci :
Se fur mille i martiri sian mille i baci!"
