  • “Tempo Passato Perchè Non Ritorni!„ (“Why are Days We Have Lived Lost For Ever?”)
    Florence (Tuscany)

    1.
    Speranza del mio cor era una volta,
    Or ti sei fatto la speranza altrui.
    Non ti ricordi più di quella volta
    Ch'eramo innamorati tutti e dui?
    Non ti ricordi più di quei bei giorni?
    Ah! tempo passato perchè non ritomi!

    2.
    Ti ho scritto tante volte inutilmente
    E sempre invano attendo la risposta.
    Dimmi pur che ti sono indifferente,
    Ma scrivi per pietà...cosa ti costa?
    Non ti ricordi più, ecc.

    1.
    Time was, when of my heart you were the treasure,
    And now of other hearts you win th' emotion;
    Have you forgotten all our former pleasure,
    When we both lov'd so fondly, all devotion?
    Have you forgotten all our love's sweet savor?
    Ah! why are the days we have liv'd lost for ever?

    2.
    How many a time l've vainly writ you a letter,
    Not even comes the answer, that l've lost you!
    Tell me you love no longer—it were better,
    Only a line, I pray—what does it cost you?
    Have you forgotten, etc.
