Pur dicesti, o bocca bella
Pur dicesti, o bocca bella,
Quel soave e caro sì,
Che fatutto il mio piacer.
Per onor di sua facella
Con un bacio Amor t'aprì,
Dolce fonte del goder, ah!

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.
