Come all'urto aggressor
Language: Italian (Italiano)
Come all'urto aggressor d'un torrente
rovinosa alta mole cadente,
sotto al braccio del greco guerriero
tutto d'Asia l'impero cadrà.
Ma il valor, come belva feroce,
senza il senno a sé stesso pur nuoce:
sarò guida degli altri al furore,
e il mio vanto maggiore sarà.
