by Vittorio Amedeo Cigna-Santi (c1730 - 1795)

Nel sen mi palpita
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Nel sen mi palpita    
dolente il core;
mi chiama a piangere
il mio dolore;
non so resistere,
non so restar.

Ma se di lagrime
umido ho il ciglio,
è solo, credimi,
il tuo periglio
la cagion barbara
del mio penar.
