Il Ciarlavotto

Rostiva, e gli ascili titovi
Andean nell'eda a triva e a spiva:
Mievi stean i borogovi,
E i duti ranchi esgrivan.

"Attento al Ciarlavotto, o figlio!
All'atre fauci, all'irto artiglio!
Attento al falco Giuggio, e bada
Al frumosal Carpiglio!"

Ei prese il vorpal ferro in pugno:
A lungo ambi' il tignal rivale --
Poi sosto' all'ombroso Titto,
E si fermo' a pensare.

E mentre in uschi sogni entrava
Il Ciarlavotto, in fiamme gli occhi,
Uffando usci' dal trico bosco,
E giunto brovoglio'!

Un-due, un-due! e giu' e giu'
La vorpal lama ando' a scip-sciap!
Lo lascio' morto, e col suo corpo
Galonfante torno'.

"Ucciso hai dunque il Ciarlavotto?
Vieni a me, mio briglio eroe!
Oh di' fragioso! Allo'! Ale'!
Sbrifo' nella sua gioia."

Rostiva, e gli ascili titovi
Andean nell'eda a triva e a spiva:
Mievi stean i borogovi,
E i duti ranchi esgrivan.
