Torna pure al carobene

Hester1 did not like the Words to Sacchini’s Song of Torna pure al carobene—so I made Her an Italian Song in the same Measure to sing instead of it.

D’un amato & fido Cuore
Che languisce nell’ Assenza,
Voi ch’avete l’Isperienza
Scusarete il Palpitar:

Pare Affanno, & par fatica
Consigliere o Arnica;
Calma solo un tal Dolore
L’Aspettato a ritrovar

Written by Hester Lynch Thrale. Thraliana entry dated 30 October 1781.
