C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Ruit Hora
By Giosuè Carducci (1835–1907)
 
O GREEN and silent solitudes, far from the rumors of men
Hither come to meet us true friends divine, O Lidia,
                Wine and love.
 
O tell me why the sea, far under the flaming Hesperus
Sends such mysterious moanings; and what songs are these, O Lidia,        5
                The pines are chanting.
 
See with what longing the hills stretch their arms to the setting sun.
The shadow lengthens and holds them; they seem to be asking
                A last kiss, O Lidia!
