Sebben, crudele

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Sebben, crudele, 
Mi fai languir,
Sempre fedele
Ti voglio amar.

Con la lunghezza
Del mio servir
La tua fierezza
Saprò stancar.

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 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.

Although, cruel love

Language: English

Although, cruel love,
you make me languish,
I will always
love you true.

With the patience
of my serving
I will be able to tire out
your pride.
