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 17, we are $5,700 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Sovra tenere erbette e bianchi fiori

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Sovra tenere erbette e bianchi fiori
stava Filli sedendo
ne l'ombra d'un alloro,
quando li dissi: »Cara Filli, io moro.«
Ed ella a me volgendo
vergognosetta il viso,
frenò frangendo fra le rose il riso
che per gioia dal core
credo ne trasse Amore.
Onde lieta mi disse:
»Baciami, Tirsi mio,
che per desir sento morirmi anch'io.«
