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 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Ecco di dolci raggi il sol armato

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ecco di dolci raggi il sol armato
Del verno saettar la stagion florida.
Di dolcissim'amor inebriato,
Dorme tacito vento in sen di Clorida.
Tal'hor però, lascivo e odorato
Ondeggiar tremolar fa l'herba florida;
L'aria, la terra, il ciel spiran amore:
Arda dunque d'amor, arda ogni core!

Io, ch'armato sin hor d'un duro gelo,
Degli assalti d'amor potei difendermi;
Né l'infocato suo pungente telo
Poté l'alma passar o 'l petto offendermi.
Hor che il tutto si cangia al novo cielo,
(A due begli occhi ancor non dovea rendermi!)
Sì si disarma il solito rigore:
Arda dunque d'amor, arda il mio core!
