  • “Fanciullo Appena, Ti Parlai D'Amore„ (“While Yet a Boy, I Told You How I Lov'd You”)
    Abruzzi (Abruzzo)

    1.
    Fanciullo appena, ti parlai d'amore,
    Garzone, t'adorai come il buon Dio:
    Tu per trastullo mi donavi il core,
    E giocando irridevi all'amor mio.

    2.
    Domani appiè dell'ara al nuovo affetto
    Darai promessa d'illibata fede:
    Io coll'antico amor sepolto in petto,
    Porrò domani in altra terra il piede.

    1.
    While yet a boy, I told you how I lov'd you,
    A youth, I worshipp'd you like my Creator;
    You led me on, as tho' my passion mov'd you,
    Till I saw love betray'd, and you the traitor!

    2.
    Kneeling before the altar, you, to-morrow,
    Will give a promise of unstain'd devotion:
    I, with a heart forlorn in secret sorrow,
    Shall seek another home beyond the ocean.
