Dunque i lacci d'un volto

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Recitativo accompagnato
Dunque i lacci d'un volto,
Tante gioie promesse,
Li spaventi d'inferno,
Forza n'avran per arrestar quel crudo?
E tu il segui, o mio core!
Fatto trofeo d'un infelice amore!
No! si svegli 'l furore,
Si raggiunga l'ingrato,
Cada a' miei piè svenato! Ohimè! Che fia?
Uccier l'alma mia?
Ah! Debole mio petto,
A un traditor anco puoi dar ricetto?
Su, su, furie , ritrovate
Nova sorte di pena e di flagello!
S'uccida, sì… ah!, ch'è troppo bello!


Ah! crudel,
Il pianto mio
Deh! Ti mova per pietà!

O infedel,
Al mio desio
Proverai la crudeltà.
