by Lorenzo Da Ponte (1749 - 1838)

Non mi dir, bell'idol mio
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Non mi dir, bell'idol mio,    
che son io crudel con te:
tu ben sai quant'io t'amai,
tu conosci la mia fé.
Calma, calma il tuo tormento,
se di duol non vuoi ch'io mora:

Forse un giorno il cielo ancora
sentirà pietà di me.
