From Giacomo Puccini's LA FANCIULLA DEL WEST
(Girl of the Golden West): "Ch'ella mi creda libero e lontano"
Let her think I'm free and far away,
On my way to a new life of redemption!
She'll wait for me to return...
and the days will pass,
and I will not return.
Minnie, the only flower of my life,
Minnie, you who have loved me so much!
Ah, you, the only flower of my life!
