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.

Vuoi punir l'ingrato amante?
Non curar novello amore.
Tanto serbati costante,
quanto infido egli sarà.

Chi punisce un traditore
non punisce i falli sui,
ma giustifica l'altrui
con la propria infedeltà.

Lieto così talvolta
fra lacci ancor s'ascolta
cantar quell'usignuolo,
se la fedel compagna
risponde al canto, al duolo,
con cui d'amor si lagna,
vago di libertà.

Più non rammenta il nido,
sgombra ogni duol dal petto,
e il dolce antico affetto
solo spiegando va.
