Una damina

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Una damina,  
una nipote,
vistosa e nobile
con buona dote
voglio affogarla,
Il matrimonio
sia per non fatto,
or vado e subito
guasto il contratto,
questo far devesi,
questo convien.
Sarei tacciato
avrei critica
in Francia, in Spagna,
cosa direbbesi
nel mondo intero
d'un uom celebre,
d'un cavaliero,
d'un letterato,
d'un podestà?

(ad Arminda)

Non ci pensate,
non vi adirate,
cos'ha da essere,
così sarà.
