"Porgi, amor," the Countess Almaviva's aria from Mozart's opera Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro). The Countess laments the Count's neglect of her.

Porgi, amor, qualche ristoro
al mio duolo, ai miei sospir';
o mi rendi il mio tesoro,
o mi lascia almen morir.

Love, give some solace
to my grief, to my sighs;
either give me back my treasure,
or at least let me die.
