Come raggio di sol

Come raggio di sol mite e sereno
Sovra placidi flutti si riposa,
Mentre del mare nel profondo seno
Sta la tempesta ascosa:
Cosi riso talor gaio e pacato
Di contento, di gioia un labbro infiora,
Mentre nel suo segreto il cor piagato
S'angoscia e si martora.

As a ray of sun mild and serene,
upon placid waves itself rests,
while of the sea in the profound bosom
remains the tempest hidden,
so laughter, sometimes gay and peaceful
with contentment, with joy a lip touches,
while in its secret depths the heart wounded
anguishes and itself tortures.

Darn! I thought you would be the one who could understand it... like a secret code... only it's just another language ;)
