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!

Clori amorosa

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Clori amorosa
d'amor rubella
più d'ogni rosa
vermiglia e bella
d'ogni alma stella
più chiara, ardente
nel tuo bel viso
sta il mio cor fiso.

Tu coi bei lumi
saeti il core
e lo consumi
col chiaro ardore
onde si more
quest'alma mia
se dolce e pia
non porgi aita
a la mia vita.

Deh dolce amore
di tua bellezza
fa specchio al core
ch'empio disprezza
pien di fierezza
pene e martiri
pianti e sospiri
d'un'alma amante
fida e costante.

Vedrai per prova
che ne' tuoi lumi
l'ardor si trova
se i tuoi costumi
fan che consumi
ogn'alma in terra
e s'ama guerra
li fa il tuo viso
e 'l dolce riso.
