Lusinghe più care
d'Amor veri dardi
Vezzose volate
sul labbro, nei guardi,
e tutta involate
l'altrui libertà.

Gelosi sospetti,
diletti con pene;
fra gioie e tormenti
momenti di spene,
voi l'armi farete
di vaga beltà.

Quanto dolce Amor sarìa
se non fosse gelosia
col gelato suo velen.

Quel che spera la Costanza,
e promette la Speranza,
Rende amaro al mesto sen.

Vibra cortese amor
un altro strale
del mio rivale al cor,
e sol l'accendi allor d'altra Bellezza.

Bramata sol da me,
per Alma tutta fe
l'ingrata non avrà
tanta fierezza.

Da un breve riposo
Di Stato amoroso,
Più Fiero, più forte
Di Gloria al sentiero
Amante e Guerriero
Il Cor tornerà.

Se gia tutta in guerra
Mi cede la Terra;
Il vanto d’Onore
S’io cedo all’Amore,
Minor non sarà.

Pregi son d'un alma grande
L'amicizia e il Valor:
Senza questi, in van si spande
ogni titolo d'Onor.
