Languir per una bella

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Languir per una bella    
e star lontan da quella,
è il più crudel tormento
che provar possa un cor.
Forse verrà il momento;
ma non lo spero ancor.
Contenta quest'alma
in mezzo alle pene
sol trova la calma
pensando al suo bene,
che sempre costante
si serba in amor.
