Come raggio di sol
Come raggio di sol mite e sereno,
Sovre placidi flutti si riposa,
Mentre del mare nel profondo seno
Sta la tempesta ascola:
Così riso talor gaio e pacato
Di contento, di gioia un [labbro]1 infiora,
Mentre nel suo segreto il cor piagato
S'angoscia e si martora.

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%
of our visitors.
