  • Canto del Carcerato (Song of the Prisoner)
    Palermo (Sicily)

    1.
    Amici, amici, chi'n Palermu jiti,
    Mi salutati dda bedda citati,
    Mi salutati li frati e l'amici,
    Puru dda vicchiaredda di mè matri.

    2.
    Spjàtini di mia chi si ni dici,
    Si li me' cosi sunnu cüitati;
    Giacchì, si voli Diu, comu si dici,
    Di novu ci haju a ghiri a libirtati.

    1.
    Ah, friends and comrades all, who forth are faring,
    My love to fair Palermo ye are bearing;
    A greeting give to all my friends, my brother,
    A tender greeting, too, for my old mother.

    2.
    See what in town they all of me are saying,
    And see if my affair is growing quiet;
    For then, if God so will as I am praying,
    My longing eye in freedom soon shall spy it.
