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!

Qui rise o Tirsi

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Qui rise, o Tirsi, e qui ver me rivolse
Le due stelle d'Amor la bella Clori;
Qui per ornarmi il crin, de' più bei fiorì
Al suon dele mie canne un grembo colse.
O memoria felice, o lieto giorno.

Qui l'angelica voce e le parole,
C'humiliaro i più superbi Tori;
Qui le Gratie scherzar vidi, e gli Amori
Quando le chiome d'or sparte raccolse.
O memoria felice, o lieto giorno.

Qui con meco s'assise, e qui mi cinse
Del caro braccio il fianco, e dolce intorno
Stringendomi la man, l'alma mi strinse.
Qui d'un bacio ferimmi, e 'l viso adorno
Di bel vermiglio vergognando tinse.
O memoria felice, o lieto giorno.
