Vol rose rosse in fiore

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Vol rose rosse in fiore, 
da Amor disposte in serti, 
perché sì custodite i vostri tesori 
e invidiate al Fanciullo i suoi piaceri?
		  Voi rose rosse in fiore . . .

Cosi mista di dolce e amaro,
la vita non è diversa dal fiore: 
Le sue dolcezze non colte languirannno
e raccolte fan soffrire. 

Dunque, bel Fanciullo, porta qui 
la GHIRLANDA, prima che appassisca,
intrisa nei vari succhi 
prodotti dai grappoli della vite:
		 Dunque, bel Fanciullo

Questo, intorno alle mie trecce umide
esprime a che serva la vita: 
li vino spunta la spina del dolore, 
la ostra rosa può appassire domani.
