Mi fai languir,
Ti voglio amar.
Con la lunghezza
Del mio servir
La tua fierezza

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%
of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
Although, cruel love
Although, cruel love,
you make me languish,
I will always
love you true.
With the patience
of my serving
I will be able to tire out
