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.

Translation(s): ENG
