by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

L'onda dal mar divisa
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
L'onda dal mar divisa
Bagna la valle e'l monte,
Va passeggera
In fiume,

Va prigioniera
In fonte,
Mormora sempre e geme
Fin che non torna al mar:

Al mar, dov' ella nacque,
Dove acquistò gli umori
Dove da'lunghi errori
Spera di riposar.
