Caro m’è ’l sonno, e più l’esser di sasso,
mentre che ’l danno e la vergogna dura;
non veder, non sentir m’è gran ventura;
però non mi destar, deh, parla basso.

Amor, la tuo beltà non è mortale:
nessun volto fra noi è che pareggi
l’immagine del cor, che ’nfiammi e reggi
con altro foco e muovi con altr’ale.

Arder sole’ nel freddo ghiaccio il foco;
or m’è l’ardente foco un freddo ghiaccio,
disciolto, Amor, [quello insolubil laccio]1,
e morte or m’è, che m’era festa e gioco.
  Quel primo amor che ne diè tempo e loco,
nella strema miseria è greve impaccio
a l’alma stanca...
