by Giannina Milli (1825 - 1888)

Un desiderio
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Vorrei col vol de l' aquila
Levar lo spirto anelo
A spaziar pe' lucidi
Campi del vasto cielo;
Libera al par de l' aria,
Un solo istante almen,
Vorrei slanciarmi a vivere
De l' infinito in sen !

Se in una stella scegliere
Dovessi mai dimora,
Non sceglierei la splendida
Foriera de l' aurora ;
Ma in sen di un astro incognito
Al mortal guardo ancor,
Vorrei romita accogliermi,
Vivervi ascosa ognor.
