Dentro il mio petto io sento

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Dentro il mio petto io sento  
un suono, una dolcezza,
di flauti, e di oboè.
Che gioia, che contento,
manco per l'allegrezza,
più bel piacer non v'è.
Ma oh dio, che all'improvviso
si cangia l'armonia
che il cor fa palpitar.
Se n'entran le viole,
e in tetra melodia
mi vengono a turbar.
Poi sorge un gran fracasso:
li timpani, le trombe,
fagotti, e contrabbasso
mi fanno disperar.
