by Torquato Tasso (1544 - 1595)

Non son in queste rive
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Non son in queste rive
fiori così vermigli
come le labra de la donna mia.
Né 'l suon de l'aure estive,
tra fonti e rose e gigli,
fan del suo canto più dolce armonia.
Canto che m'ardi e piaci,
t'interrompano solo i nostri baci.
