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!

Alcun non mi consigli

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Alcun non mi consigli,
se ben il cor perdei,
ch'abbandonai colei
ch'è la mia vita, ancor che cruda e fera:
che se ben vuol ch'io pera
e che la speme mia ne port'il vento,
non me n'adiro, no,
non me ne doglio, no, non me ne pento.

Ben s'affatica invano
chi m'addita il mio male;
e 'l contrastar non vale
che beltà, ch'è severa, un cor diletta.
Sì dolce è la saetta
che, se ben brama il cor fiamma e tormento,
non me n'adiro, no,
non me ne doglio, no, non me ne pento.

Perché lo stral di morte
esce dagl'occhi belli,
perché gl'aurei capelli
son la cantena e quel tenace nodo
in cui stretto mi godo,
e perché se le piace il mio lamento,
non me n'adiro, no,
non me ne doglio, no, non me ne pento.
