Era un giorno di festa, Rosa Mamai's aria from L'Arlesiana

Era un giorno di festa
ei la vide e s'accese d'amore.
Da quel giorno donato 
ha il suo core a lei sola 
e non pensa più a me
Gli parliam non risponde parola;
cuore e mente glistringe un gran nodo!
Nei suoi sogni lei sempre, lei sola.
Pur da quel giorno io sento nel mio cor
che gli sarà fatal quest'amore.
Nei suoi sogni lei sola e non pensa a me..
