by Paolo Antonio Rolli (1687 - 1765)

Dimmi, cara
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Dimmi, cara,  
dimmi, «tu dei morir»
ma, o cara, non mi dir,
«parti lontan da me».

Pria di vederti, sì
forse potea partir:
or che ti veggio, no
no che non vuol non può
partire il cor e il piè.
