Ad una stella
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Stella gentil, che a sera
Corri le vie del cielo,
Segreta messaggera
Vuoi farti al nostro amor?

Saresti eternamente
L'amica piú [fedel]1,
La nostra confidente
Nel riso e nel dolor.

Tu sai, soave stella,
Com'io, pensoso e triste,
Sospiri ognor, ed ella
M'aspetti e pianga ognor.

Deh! Se la vedi, a lei
Dí mille dolci cose
E mille ancor. Oh, sei
L'astro del nostro amor!

1 the last word should be «fedele» for metrical reasons, but Catalani set «fedel» instead.
