Sui campi e sulle strade
Silenziosa e lieve,
Volteggiando, la neve

Danza la falda bianca
Ne l'ampio ciel scherzosa,
Poi sul terren si posa

In mille immote forme
Sui tetti e sui camini,
Sui cippi e nei giardini

Tutto dintorno è pace:
Chiuso in oblìo profondo,
Indifferente il mondo

Ma ne la calma immensa
Torna ai ricordi il core,
E ad un sopito amore
