  • “Che Mai T'ho Fatt', Amor?„ (“Why Do You Turn Your Eyes Away?”)
    Abruzzi (Abruzzo)

    Che mai t'ho fatt', amor,
    Che non mi guardi?
    Dimmelo per pietà!
    Non più ritardi.

    La lunga chioma bionda,
    E il tuo bel viso,
    Angiol ti fan sembrar
    Del Paradiso.

    Se ti tormento, o cara,
    Ah! non son io:
    È questo cor la causa,
    È l'amor mio.

    Why do you turn your eyes
    Away in anger?
    What have I done?—oh, say!
    Delay no longer.

    So golden shines your hair,
    So fair your face is,
    As of an angel arm'd
    With heav'nly graces.

    If I torment you, love,
    Myself 't is never:
    Only this heart of mine,
    That loves you ever!
