La mia canzone

Language: Italian (Italiano)

La mia canzone è un dolce mormorio
Che sino a te, nell'aria fredda, sale;
E, se ti parla ancor dell'amor mio,
Cara fanciulla, non ti vuol far male;
Vagando sul tuo candido guanciale,
Essa vuol dirti un ultimo desio:
Su la tua bianca fronte verginale.
La mia canzone è il bacio dell'addio
il baccio dell'addio.

La mia canzone sospirando muore
Lieve nell'aria su la tua vetrata;
Ma, disfidando il gelo e il tenebrore,
Reca il desio d'un'anima agitata;
E vuol destar ogn'ansia a te più grata,
Ogni affetto sopito entro il tuo cuore:
Ora che tu sei sola, addormentata,
La mia canzone è un fremito d'amore!
