Pur dicesti, o bocca bella

Language: Italian

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!

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.
