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!

Quando dentro al tuo seno

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Quando dentro il tuo seno
Vibra amoroso sguardo
Il primo aurato dardo
Oh che gioir,
Ma quando di veleno
Arma le punte acute,
e ti nega salute,
Oh, che languir.

Quando quel vago riso
mira con dolci rai
i tuoi pianti, i tuoi guai
oh che gioir
ma quando in altri fiso
gir il tuo mal in canto
prende a riso il tuo pianto
oh che languir.
Quando donna onorata
senti ch'ai tuoi sospiri
pietosa risospiri
oh che gioir
ma quando finge ingrata
non udir i lamenti
non veder i tormenti
oh che languir.
