 Befana Epiphany 2020

The Befana comes at night
In worn-out shoes
Dressed like a Roman
Long live the Befana

Here comes, here comes the Befana

She comes from the mountains in the deep of the night

Look how tired she is! All wrapped up

In snow and frost and the north wind! 

Here comes, here comes the Befana!
