Il tuo sguardo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Colmo ella è di dolcezza, incanta ed innamora
E all'alma dolce ebbrezza infonde, e il cor ristora.
Se la nera pupilla mesta mi figgi in viso
L'amorosa scintilla d'angelo par d'Eliso.

Sia rubello od avaro, mesto egli sia o sereno
Sempre il tuo sguardo è caro, e amore suscita in seno !... 
Se mi guardi mi bei e siem mi fai sofrir
Viver mio ben vorrei d'un tuo sguardo e morir !

Colmo ella è di dolcezza...
