Come rugiada al cespite, Ernani's aria from Ernani

Come rugiada al cespite 
d'un appassito fiore, 
d'aragonese vergine 
scendeami voce al core: 
fu quello il primo palpito 
d'amor che mi beò. 
Il vecchio Silva stendere 
osa su lei la mano... 
domani trarla al talamo 
confida l'inumano... 
Ah, s'ella m'è tolta, ah misero! 
d'affanno morirò!
