Che farai, Meliseo?

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Che farai, Meliseo? Morte rifiutati
Poichè Filli t’ha posto in doglie e lagrime
Ne più, come solea, lieta salutati.
Dunque, amici pastor, ciascun consacrime
Versi sol di dolor, lamenti e ritimi;
E chi altro non può, meco collagrime.
A pianger col suo pianto ognun incimiti,
Ognun la pena sua meco communiche,
Ben ch’il mio duol da sè di e notte invitimi.
