Come raggio di sol
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG POR SPA
Come raggio di sol mite e sereno,
Sovre placidi flutti si riposa,
Mentre del mare nel profondo seno
Sta la tempesta ascosa:

Così riso talor gaio e pacato
Di contento, di gioia un [labbro]1 infiora,
Mentre nel suo segreto il cor piagato
S'angoscia e si martora.
