Per questa bella mano
Per questa bella mano,
Per questi vaghi rai
Giuro, mio ben, che mai
Non amerò che te.
L'aure, le piante, i sassi,
Che i miei sospir ben sanno,
A te qual sia diranno
La mia costante fé.
Volgi lieti o fieri sguardi,
Dimmi pur che m'odi o m'ami,
Sempre acceso ai dolci dardi,
Sempre tuo vo' che mi chiami,
Né cangiar può terra o cielo
Quel desio che vive in me.

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary

the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02%
