Rollin’ river, tell me, what do you see on your long, long journey from the mountains to the sea? Do you sparkle in the sunshine? Does your rushing water flow? Rollin’ river take me with you when you go.
I have been travelin’ hard for such a long time, searchin’ for something, something to call mine.I can see your waters flashing and it’s almost like a song. I can listen to your music all night long.
Cosimo Pater Patriae
Còsimo di Giovanni degli Mèdici (27 September 1389 – 1 August 1464) was the first of the Medici political dynasty, de facto rulers of Florence during much of the Italian Renaissance; also known as “Cosimo ‘the Elder’” (“il Vecchio”) and “Cosimo Pater Patriae” (Latin: ‘father of the nation’).
