Aure deh per pietà

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Dall'ondoso periglio
salvo mi porta al lido
il mio propizio fato.
Qui la celeste parca
non tronca ancor lo stame alla mia vita!
Ma dove andrò? e chi mi porge aita?
Ove son le mie schiere?
ove son le legioni,
che a tante mie vittorie il varco apriro?
Solo in queste erme arene
al monarca del mondo errar conviene?

Aure deh per pietà
spirate al petto mio
per dar conforto oh dio
al mio dolor.
Dite: dov'è, che fa
l'idol del mio sen,
l'amato e dolce ben
di questo cor?

Ma d'ogni intorno i' veggio
sparse d'arme e d'estinti
l'infortunate arene;
segno d'infausto annunzio al fin sarà.
