Da scirocco a tramontana

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Da scirocco a tramontana,    
da levante a mezzogiorno
è palese intorno, intorno
la mia antica nobiltà.
Ho gran feudi ed ho vassalli,
ho più nonni marescialli,
più sorelle principesse,
tre regine, sei contesse,
dieci consoli romani,
ed i principi, i sovrani,
non si posson numerar.
Ma cospetto! Voi ridete?
Signor mio, non li vedete?
Ecco Numa, ecco Scipione,
Marco Aurelio, Marco Agrippa,
Muzio Scevola, e Catone,
e quei due che vanno a spalla
son Tiberio e Caracalla.
Con rispetto salutateli
sprofondatevi, inchinatevi
a ciascun di qua di là.
