Help with a short sentence in Venezian

Postby tradarq » 22 Apr 2010, 18:43

Hello!
I am new here, my name is Carmen, I am a Spanish and Italian speaker.
But I have to translate this short text and it is old Venezian. Could anyone please help me understand the first sentence?
It is:
" Da Venezia lontan domile mia,"

and it follows:
"no passa dì che no me vegna in mente el dolce nome dela patria mia
El lenguazo i costumi dela zente"

These two last sentences I understand, but on the first one:
"Da Venezia lontan domile mia"

I really can't catch the meaning.
"Domile " é "due mila", as I have found out.

but what has this to do with "mia"??

THANKS for help.
Best greetings
Carmen

I must've read it wrong...I thought it said 'distant from my home'

just a first impression
