È amore un ladroncello

Language: Italian (Italiano)

È amore un ladroncello,    
un serpentello è amor.
Ei toglie e dà la pace,
come gli piace, ai cor.
Per gli occhi al seno appena
un varco aprir si fa,
che l'anima incatena
e toglie libertà.
Porta dolcezza e gusto,
se tu lo lasci far;
ma t'empie di disgusto,
se tenti di pugnar.
Se nel tuo petto ei siede,
s'egli ti becca qui,
fa' tutto quel ch'ei chiede,
che anch'io farò così.
