Maria Callas - Norma - Mira O Norma

Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

ADALGISA
Mira, o Norma, ai tuoi ginocchi
questi cari tuoi pargoletti.
Ah! pietade di lor ti tocchi,
se non hai di te pietà...

NORMA
Ah! perché la mia costanza
vuoi scemar con molli affetti?
Più lusinghe, ah più speranza
presso a morte un cor non ha...

English Libretto or Translation:

ADALGISA
See, O Norma, at your knees,
these dear, dear children.
Let pity for them move you,
if you feel no pity for yourself...

NORMA
Ah, why do you try to weaken me
with such soft feelings?
Such illusions, such hopes
are not for one about to die.
