6. Sonnet Originally tabbed by: Unregistered VERSE 1
E Guido, I wish that you and Lapo and I
BCould be taken by magic and placed in a boat
EWhere every rising swell
BWould sweep us at our will across the sky
VERSE 2
EThen tempest never, or weather dire
BCould ever make our blissful living cease
ENo, but abiding in a steady, blessed peace
BTogether in harmony
BRIDGE
C#m AAnd Lady Vanna and Lagia then
EShe who looms the thirty best
BWould join us at the enchanter’s behest
VERSE 3
E And there we’d talk of love without an end
BTo make those ladies happy in the sky
E BWith Lapo enchanted too, and you and I
