Italian.png Italian text

I piango et ella il volto,
Con le sue man m'asciuga e poi sospira
Dolcemente e s'adira,
Con parole che i sassi romper ponno,
E dopo questo si parte ella e'l sonno.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
I weep and she, with her hands, dries my face
and then sighs sweetly, and flies into a rage,
using words that could break rocks.
And then she leaves – and so does sleep.
