Rissolvetevi, pensieri

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Rissolvetevi, pensieri,
di lasciarmi in libertà:
è tropo'aspra crudeltà
raddoppiar nodi sì fieri.
E se stimate ch'altr'amor io brami
stringetemi al suo sen, cari legami!
Lusinghiere mie speranze,
il tentarmi è vanità:
il mio cor soffrir non sa
vostre per fide baldanze.
Già senza replicar nuovo dolore,
del primo colpo ho ancor piagato il core.
Se tra gl'agi d'un bel colle
volgo mai ramingo il pie',
a far prova di mìa fé
rio fantasma ognor s'estolle.
Se sì grave pensier l'anima ingombra,
ahi, ch'il suo amor non è che sogno et ombra.
