Stornello

Language: Italian (Italiano)

O fior del prato!
Maggio di fiori tutto il mondo allieta,
Ma il più bel fior ne l'alma or m'è sbocciato.
Sfida ogni brina
Il fior ch'io tengo e sullo stel sostiene
Petali d'or, corolla cilestrina.

O fior del verde!
Alma di donna a la ragion sta sorda
E nel torneo d'amor vince chi perde!
Ansia profonda!
Amor che a cor gentil ratto s'apprende,
Occhi d'azzurro tiene e chioma bionda.
