I Rom, i Rom, dit ung jag kom

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

I Rom, i Rom, dit ung jag kom
Står i marmor i helgedom
en jungfru, som evigt jag drömmer om
och som fordom levat i forna Rom.
Jag dröide mot piedestalen stödd,
Det vart mina läppar förment
att möta hennes, jag som blev född
väl tjugu hundrade år försent.

Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani
