Bel Canto

My languid heart wishes for a bit of peace

For it is swollen cold on a cruel winter’s eve

And it would already have reached its final coda

If not for your saving grace, my dearest belladonna


With your sinuous voice resounding ever so clear

That twinkling aureate tune flowing through my ears

Bedizened with emotions, it makes my sadness and gloom decay

My indolence forgotten and the piercing frozen spikes melted away


With you I feel like I’m standing on a spring day under the shade

The harshness of the snowscape seems gradually to fade

So may I just say to you: Grazie, mia belladona

Per le vostre canzoni che sempre mi danno speranza.
