Italian.png Italian text

Scarpello si vedra di piombo, quale esser suole
da primavera alcuna volta il cielo,
quando la pioggia cade, e a un tempo il sole
si sgombra intorno il nubiloso velo.
E come il rosignuol dolci carole
mena nei rami alor del verde stelo,
cosi alle belle lagrime le piume
si bagna Amore, e gode al chiaro lume.

English.png English translation

Her face was such as sometimes in the spring
We see a doubtful sky, when on the plain
A shower descends, and the sun, opening
His cloudy veil, looks out amid the rain.
And as the nightingale then loves to sing
From branch of verdant stem her dulcet strain,
So in her beauteous tears his pinions bright
Love bathes, rejoicing in the chrystal light.

by William Stewart Rose (1775-1843)
