Inspired by the famous aria, a song of great emotion and a favourite of mine
VESTI LA GIUBBA
At times you discover a magical sound,
a beauty that stills the passing of time
lucky are those who one such have found,
whether music, song or simple chime.
A song I heard when I was young
has a pathos that still brings a tear,
draws out, when with passion sung,
jumbled feelings of love and fear.
I feel the hurt of betrayed Pagliacco
as he draws his Clowns happy face,
heart breaking, on stage he must go,
though love has gone without trace.
A song can passionate embers fan
it is what makes humanity unique
thus has it been since music began
a gift from the world’s mystique
