Se voi bramate

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Se voi bramate  
il nostro amore,
l'arte imparate
di farvi amar.
I vezzi teneri,
i dolci modi,
il tratto amabile
sono quei nodi
che il cor ci possono
Col ruvido impero,
coll'aspra favella,
col ciglio severo,
di giovine bella
invan pretendete
l'affetto acquistar.
Se ancor non l'intende
tu meglio, o Sandrino,
a quel babbuino
la scuola puoi far.
