TESTO DEL LIED"What if some little pain"
di Edmund Spenser (1552-1599)
What if some little pain the passage have,
That makes frail flesh to fear the bitter wave?
Is not short pain well home, that brings long ease,
And lays the soul to sleep in quiet grave?
Sleep after toil, port after stormy seas,
Ease after war, death after life doth greatly please.
