Sunrise was rising
behind the blue mountains
facing the stunning Bay
of Naples.

Ah! No thought was more 
painful than my farewell
to childhood that had started
and soon gone!

Why was deep sadness
anticipating tomorrow...
weren't others wishing me
good fortune? 

Why wouldn't a smart boy
live his happy future
where gold was a promise...
was it fear?

With an incredible  
strength I carried my weight...
enduring many pains,
losing heart.
