TESTO DEL LIED"By the gaily circling glass"
di John Milton (1608-1674)
By the gaily circling glass
We can see how minutes pass
By the hollow cask we're told,
How the waning night grows old.
Soon, too soon, the busy day
Drives us from our sports away,
What have we with day to do
Sons of care 'twas made for you.
