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!

Fumia la pastorella

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Fumia la pastorella,
tessendo ghirlandetta,
sen gia cantando in un prato di fiori.
(Intorno intorno a quella
scherzavan per l'erbetta
Ciprigna, il figlio e i pargoletti amori).
Ella rivolta al sole
dicea queste parole:
»Almo divino raggio,
della cui santa luce
questa lieta stagion s'alluma e 'ndora,
e 'l bel mese di maggio
oggi per te conduce
dal ciel in terra la tua vaga Flora,
deh, quel che sì s'annoia
cangia in letizia e in gioia«.
Allora i pastor tutti
del Tebro, e ninfe a schiera
corsero a l'armonia lieti e veloci:
e di fior e di frutti
che porta Primavera,
gli porgean doni, e con rozze alte voci
cantavan tuttavia
le lodi di Fumia.
