by Giovanni Battista Guarini (1538 - 1612)

Lumi, miei cari lumi
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Lumi, miei cari lumi,
che lampeggiate un sì veloce sguardo
ch'a pena mira e fugge
e poi torna sì tardo
che 'l mio cor se ne strugge;
volgete a me, volgete
quei fuggitivi rai,
ch'oggetto non vedrete
in altra parte mai
con sì giusto desio,
che tanto vostro sia quanto son io.
