D'ogni più sacro impegno

Language: Italian (Italiano)

D'ogni più sacro impegno  
sciolta pur sia la fede,
amor da voi non chiede
chi amor per voi non ha.
Pèra, chi vuol costringere
d'un cor la libertà.

Ma se un sospetto indegno
di soverchiarmi intende,
quel generoso sdegno,
che il mio decoro accende,
dalla ragione armato,
un vano ardir confondere,
e impallidir farà.
