lyrics

Cupi a notte canti suonano

Da Cosenza su ‘l Busento,

Cupo il fiume gli rimormora

Dal suo gorgo sonnolento.

Su e giú pe ‘l fiume passano

E ripassano ombre lente:

Alarico i Goti piangono,

Il gran morto di lor gente.

Dove l’onde pria muggivano,

Cavan,  cavano la terra;

E profondo il corpo calano.

A cavallo, armato in guerra.

Lui di terra anche ricoprono

E gli arnesi d’or lucenti:

De l’eroe crescan su l’umida

Fossa l’erbe de i torrenti!


English:
The Grave in the Busento

By Cosenza, songs of wail at midnight wake Busento’s shore,
O’er the wave resounds the answer, and amid the vortex’ roar!
Valiant Goths, like spectres, steal along the banks with hurried pace,
Weeping over Alaric dead, the best, the bravest of his race.
In the waveless hollow turning o’er and o’er the sod, the corse
Deep into the earth they sank, in armor clad, upon his horse.
Covered then with earth again the horse and rider in the grave,
That above the hero’s tomb the torrent’s lofty plants might wave.

(These lyrics are from the poem by August von Platen-Hallermünde, the translated italian version is by Giosuè Carducci)
