Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

FERRANDO
Brevi e tristi giorni visse:
Pure ignoto del cor presentimento
Gli diceva che spento
Non era il figlio; ed, a morir vicino,
Bramò che il signor nostro a lui giurasse
Di non cessar le indagini... ah! fûr vane!...

ARMIGERI
E di colei non s'ebbe
Contezza mai?

FERRANDO
Nulla contezza...
Oh, dato mi fosse
Rintracciarla un dì!...

FAMILIARI
Ma ravvisarla potresti?

FERRANDO
Calcolando gli anni trascorsi... lo potrei.

ARMIGERI
Sarebbe tempo presso la madre
All'inferno spedirla.

FERRANDO
All'inferno? È credenza che dimori
Ancor nel mondo l'anima perduta
Dell'empia strega, e quando il cielo è nero
In varie forme altrui si mostri.

English Libretto or Translation:

FERRANDO
His remaining days were few and sad;
yet an undefined presentiment
at heart told him that his son
was not dead; and when he lay dying,
he desired that our master
should swear to him not to stop
his search. Ah! It was in vain!

MEN
And was no news ever had of her?

FERRANDO
No news!
Oh! were it granted me
to track her down some day!

MEN
But, could you recognise her?

FERRANDO
Considering the years that have passed,
I could.

MEN
It would be time to send her
to her mother, in hell.

FERRANDO
In hell?
It's common belief that
the wicked witch's damned soul
still lives in the world, and when the sky
is black she shows herself in various shapes.
