Piango, gemo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Piango, gemo, sospiro e peno,
E la piaga rinchiusa è nel cor.
Solo chiedo per pace del seno,
Che m'uccida più fiero dolor.

Translation(s): ENG

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, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

I weep, I groan

Language: English

I weep, I groan, I sigh, I suffer,
And the soreness is confined within my heart.
I only ask for the sake of my heart's peace
That an even more fierce pain should kill me.
