Come raggio di sol

Language: Italian

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.

Gentle Reminder
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, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
