. Sprezza il furor del vento


Sprezza il furor del vento
robusta quercia, avvezza,
di cento verni e cento
[l'ingiurie a tollerar]1.

E se pur cade al suolo,
spiega per l'onde il volo,
e con quel vento istesso
va contrastando in mar.

1 Veracini: "gl'oltraggi a superar"

. Dall labbro che t'accende


Dal labbro, che t'accende
di così dolce ardor,
la sorte tua dipende,
(e la mia sorte ancor).

Mi spiace il tuo tormento;
ne sono a parte, e sento
che del tuo cor la pena
è pena del mio cor.
