by Gabriele D'Annunzio (1863 - 1938)

Dorme la selva, e tra l'ombrose fronde
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Dorme la selva, e tra l'ombrose fronde
scherza argentea la luna; un molle albore
ne l'ampia solitudin si diffonde:
Amore amore!

E l'usignol non canta. Ei piega lento
su 'l curvo salcio la testina, e muore;
pur l'estremo sospir gli strappa il vento:
Amore amore!
