by Gabriele D'Annunzio (1863 - 1938)

L'ora è tarda; deserto il mar si frange
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
L'ora è tarda; deserto il mar si frange,
e il gregge a 'l pian calò:
una tristezza grave in cor mi piange,
e sovra il lito io sto.

Io mi struggo d'amore e di desío,
ma tu non pensi a me:
tu sei partito senza dirmi addio:
perché, dimmi, perché?
