by Torquato Tasso (1544 - 1595)

Dolcemente dormiva la mia Clori
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Dolcemente dormiva la mia Clori
e intorn'al suo bel volto
givan scherzand'i pargolett'amori.
Mirav'io da me tolto,
con gran diletto lei,
quando dir mi sentei: stolto, che fai?
tempo perduto non s'acquista mai.
Allor io mi chinai così pian piano
e baciandole il viso,
provai quanta dolcezz'ha il paradiso.
