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!

Non così tosto io miro

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Non così tosto io miro
il vostro vago ardore
che cessa'ogni martiro
onde m'affligge Amore:
cotanto ha di valore
occhi vostra beltà.

Uscir dal fianco ardente
sospir non ha diletto
né fa sentir dolente
la lingua alcun suo detto
né giù per gli occhi al petto
pur lagrima sen va.

Tutta alfin si ravviva
la mia vita amorosa
qual fior in fresca riva
a l'Alba rugiadosa
o qual serpe squammosa
a Soli de l'està.

Tanto poss'io contarvi
begl'occhi di mio stato;
ma se viene in mirarvi
altri sì fortunato
deh quanto fio beato
chi mai vi bacerà.
