Sospiri di foco
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Sospiri di foco,
Che l'aure inflammate,
Leggeri volate
Intorno al mio bene.
E l'aspre mie pene
Narrategli un poco.
Sospiri, sospiri di foco,
Sospiri, sospiri di foco!

Aurette leggere,
Che udite il mio duolo,
Portatevi a volo
Al sen di chi adoro,
E dite ch'io moro
In doglie severe,
Aurette, aurette leggere,
aurette, aurette leggere.
