(Francesco Cilea - L'ARLESIANA)

E' la solita storia del pastore…
Il povero ragazzo
Voleva raccontarla, e s'addormi.
C'è nel sonno l'oblio.
Come l'invidio!
Anch'io vorrei dormir cosi,
Nel sonno almeno l'oblio trovar!
La pace sot cercando io vò:
Vorrei poter tutto scordar.
Ma ogni sforzo è vano... Davanti
Ho sempre di lei il dolce sembiante!
La pace tolta è sempre a me...
Perché degg'io tanto penar?
Lei!... sempre mi paria at cor!
Fatale vision, mi lascia!
Mi fai tanto male!
