Compatite al mio gran fallo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Compatite al mio gran fallo,
compatite occhi amorosi,
altri no che voi non sallo,
compatite al mio gran fallo.
Che son giudici pietosi
i Minossi e i Radamanti
degl'errori degl'amanti
si raccordi la pietà
che l'amar e l'errare insieme va.
Compatite al mio gran fallo,
compatite occhi amorosi,
altri no che voi non sallo,
compatite al mio gran fallo.
Fermi, fermi o sospiri,
no, non vi dicchiarate
ch''una crudel amate!
Se patite non gliel dite
no, non vi dicchiarate.
