Cielo e mar, Enzo Grimaldo's aria from La Gioconda

Cielo e mar! l'etereo velo     	Sky and sea! the airy curtain
  splende come un santo altar. 	   sparkles like a holy altar.
L'angiol mio verrà dal cielo?  	Will my angel come from the sky?
  l'angiol mio verrà dal mare?	   will my angel come from the sea?
Qui l'attendo; ardente spira   	Here I wait for her; the wind
  oggi il vento dell'amor.   	   now blows hot with love
Ah! quell'uom che vi sospira  	Ah, that man who sighs for you,
  vi conquide, o sogni d'ôr! 	   he overcomes you, o golden dreams!

Per l'aura fonda             	Through the thick air
  non appar né suol né monte. 	   neither shore nor mountains appear
L'orizzonte bacia l'onda!     	The horizon kisses the waves;
  l'onda bacia l'orizzonte!  	   the waves kiss the horizon.
Qui nell'ombra, ov'io mi giacio	Here in the darkness, where I lie
  coll'anelito del cor,      	   waiting with racing heart
Vieni, o donna, vieni al bacio	Come, o woman, come to my kiss
  della vita e dell'amor...    	   of life and of love.
