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!

I bei legami

Language: Italian (Italiano)

I bei legami
che stamm'intorno
perch'io sempr'ami
bel viso adorno
mano gli strinse
che sì m'avvinse
per caro modo
ch'avvinto io godo.

Tempo ch'alato
rapido vai
me scatenato
mai non vedrai
e crescan ire
per mio martire
e cresca orgoglio
per mio cordoglio.

Chè s'io rammento
la nobil mano
ogni tormento
m'assale invano
man bianca e pura
ch'in prova oscura
spume marine
e nevi alpine.

Oh tu ch'altiere
saetti Amore
chiamati arciere
per suo valore
ch'ogni tuo strale
è per sè frale
né l'arco offende
s'ella nol tende!
