Chiome d'argento fine

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Chiome d’argento fino, irte e attorte 
senz’arte intorno ad un bel viso d’oro;
fronte crespa, u’ mirando io mi scoloro,
dove spunta i suoi strali Amor e Morte;
occhi di perle vaghi, luci torte
da ogni obietto diseguale a loro;
ciglie di neve e quelle, ond’io m’accoro,
dita e man dolcemente grosse e corte;
labra di latte, bocca ampia celeste;
denti d’ebeno rari e pellegrini;
inaudita ineffabile armonia;
costumi alteri e gravi: a voi, divini
servi d’Amor, palese fo che queste
son le bellezze della donna mia.
