EXCERPT:

GUIDO [softly].

Asleep, Lisetta?

LISETTA.

Guido! Ah, I have need of naught, Guido. Thou needst not leave yet the pleasant air.

GUIDO.

Lisetta, my love, I have been long from thee.

LISETTA.

Let not that trouble thee, my needs are few, And Pia is most kind.

GUIDO.

So little I may do.

LISETTA.

Thou hast already served to weariness.

[He kneels beside her bed.]

GUIDO.

My love, I have been long from thee, but now I will not leave thee any more. Oh, God, Let these kisses tell my heart to her.

LISETTA.

Guido, my love, perhaps I dream of thee! Perhaps God sends a dream to solace me.

GUIDO.

Along the stream I went and where it crossed Bevagna road–where the chestnut grows, thou knowest- Lisetta, I saw him.

LISETTA.

Yes, yes, I know, whom sawest thou?

GUIDO.

The brother, Francis of Assisi.
