  • La Scillitana (The Maiden of Scilla)
    Scilla (Calabria)

    1.
    Vitti na tigra dinta na silva scura,
    E cu lu chiantu miu mansueta fari!

    2.
    Vitti cu l'acqua na marmura dura
    Calunnu a guccia a guccia arimudari!

    3.
    E vui che siti bedda criatura,
    Vi ni riditi destu chiantu amari?

    1.
    I've seen a tiger roaming the gloomy forest,
    And there I needed only my tears to tame it.

    2.
    I've seen how dropping water has fall'n with no rest,
    Long on the hardest marble, and overcame it.

    3.
    Yet you deride my sorrow when 't is sorest,
    Tho' 't is your charms my heart owns, and so inflame it!
