Penso

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Penso alla prima volta in cui volgesti
Lo sguardo tuo soave insino a me,
Ai dolce incanto, ai palpiti celesti
Che quell'istante tenero mi diè.

Ma tu... tu l'hai scordato,
Dici che un sogno fu,
Come in quel dì beato
Non sai guardarmi più!

Penso al sorriso che mirai primiero
Sul labbro tuo dolcissimo vagar,
Alle speranze, al sogno lusinghiero
Che mi seppe nell'animo destar!

Ma tu... tu l'hai scordato,
Dici che un sogno fu,
Come in quel dì beato
Non sai sorrider più!

Penso alla prima volta in cui fremente
Ti strinsi sul mio core ebbro d'amor;
Quel primo bacio innamorato, ardente,
Io lo ricordo, io lo ricordo ognor!

Ma tu... tu l'hai scordato,
Dici che un sogno fu,
Come in quel dì beato
Non sai baciarmi più!...
