Lilla crudele ad onta d'amore

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Lascia sì la benda e l'ali,
cieco fanciul di Venere!
Dell'arco e degli strali
fa' pur, fanne pur cenere,
spegni, spegni la face
mentre accender, Amore,
non puoi di Lilla il core:
troppo l'esser crudel, troppo le piace!

Taci si, bamboccio dio!
Non trattar più d'uccidere,
che dei tuoi strali anch'io
vo' pur burlarmi e ridere,
frena, frena l'ardire.
Tu ti vanti, insolente,
di stral onnipotente
e una femmina vil, non puoi ferire!
