$2.25 donated for next verse!

I think you want "fate" ['fa.te], not "fate" [fejt], in (what is currently) the next-to-last verse.

And, forse, to add a note for striòs... which I had the De-- deuce of a time finding – Bergamesco, ai! – and then checking my understanding of the standard Italian gloss. :-)

Thank you! I have posted the new verse.

Fixed, thanks.

Sorry about that. I think I put the note in an earlier poem, and just forgot to include it here. I've fixed that too.

I appreciate the proofreading assist.

1. Hmm! So let's see what they will do with this. (Rubs hands in gleeful anticipation.)

2. I'm glad. I'm always a bit nervous pointing out things like that, especially publicly.

Hee! The fun rolls onward.

It depends on who you're working with. I appreciate audience oversight. This isn't conventional publication where I've got an acquisitions editor, a proofreader, a fact-checker, etc. in somebody's office. You-all are it. kajones_writing is another crowdfunder who welcomes audience input and actually has a perk program for spotting typos and other help.

Some folks, on the other hand, have been roughed up enough that they don't feel comfortable with negative feedback or typo alerts. That's okay too.

If you look at project pages, sometimes you can find a direct yes/no statement on corrections. Other times you pretty much have to guess based on author interaction.
