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!

Damigella tutta bella

Language: Italian (Italiano)

tutta bella
versa versa quel bel vino,
fa che cada
la rugiada
distillata di rubino.

Ho nel seno
rio veneno
che vi sparse Amor profondo
ma gittarlo
e lasciarlo
vo' sommerso in questo fondo.

tutta bella
di quel vin tu non mi satii
fa che cada
la rugiada
distillata da topatii.

Nova fiamma
più m'infiamma
arde il cor foco novello
se mia vita
non s'aita
ah ch'io vengo un Mongibello!

Ma più fresca
ogn' hor cresca
dentro me sì fatta arsura
e disfarmi
per tal modo ho per ventura.
