Ascoltiamo!.. E' una dolce melodia che sembra sogno fatto realtà... I nostri nomi insieme mormorati in un istante di felicità! Non senti, anima mia? Lassù dai vasti cieli illuminati ci rispondon le stelle così sia!

Let us listen! A sweet melody resembling a dream made reality. Our names together murmured in an instant of sheer happiness! My soul, don't you hear? Up above from the vast illumined heavens, the stars respond to us that is it so!
