Quando cadran le foglie e tu verrai
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Quando cadran le foglie e tu verrai
A cercar la mia croce in camposanto,
In un cantuccio la ritroverai
E molti fior le saran [nati]1 accanto.

Cògli [allora]2 pe' tuoi biondi capelli
I fiori nati [dal]3 mio cor. Son quelli

I canti che pensai [ma]1 che non scrissi,
Le parole d'amor che non ti dissi.
