Lyrics & English Translation
The night, deep and dark, reigned in the silence... A pale ray from the gloomy moon shone on the fountain... When a low sigh was heard throughout the air; and there on the fountain's edge the shadow appeared to me! Ah! Her lips moved as if speaking, and with her lifeless hand she seemed to call me. She stood there, motionless, then she suddenly disappeared. And the water, earlier so limpid, became as red as the blood.
