Quando cadran le foglie e tu verrai

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Quando cadran le foglie e tu verrai
A cercar la mia croce in camposanto,
In un cantuccio la ritroverai
E molti fior le saran [nati]1 accanto.

Cògli [allora]2 pe' tuoi biondi capelli
I fiori nati [dal]3 mio cor. Son quelli

I canti che pensai [ma]1 che non scrissi,
Le parole d'amor che non ti dissi.

Cuando caigan las hojas

Language: Spanish (Español) after the Italian (Italiano)

Cuando caigan las hojas y tú vayas
en busca de mi cruz al camposanto,
la encontrarás en un rincón humilde,
de flores rodeada por un manto.

Las que hayan de mi pecho florecido
Para tu blonda cabellera elige...

Serán los cantos que escribir no supe...
Las palabras de amor que no te dije...
