  • Ciuri (Flower-Songs)

    Ciuri Flower-Songs
    Ciuri di parma !
    Ammatula mi scappi, e non stai ferma.
    Siddu nun haju a tiá, mi nesci l' arma !
    Flower of palm !
    In vain I fly–in vain I search for calm.
    My life goes from me–left without thee to charm !
    Ciuri di ciuri !
    A costu chi mi cassanu lu cori,
    Nuddu mi spartirà di lu tò amuri !
    Flower flowering !
    E'en while thy sharpest shaft enduring,
    Naught shall thy love from out my heart be snatching !
    Rosu ciurita !
    Tannu nun passirò cchiù di sta strata
    Quannu la morti mi leva la vita !
    Blossoming rose !
    My passing steps no more'll haunt thy repose
    When Death my life shall in last sleep compose !
    Ciuri di risu !
    E si 'na vota ssi labbruzza vasu
    Io moru e mi nni vaju in paradisu !
    Floweret of rice !
    If I but once may those thy dear lips kiss,
    I then may die and pass to Paradise !
