Piagn'e sospira, e quand'i caldi raggi
fuggon le greggi a la dolce ombr'assise,
ne la scorza de' pini o pur de' faggi
segnò l'amato nome in mille guise;
e de la sua fortuna i gravi oltraggi
e i vari casi in dura scorza incise,
e in rileggendo poi le proprie note
spargea di pianto le vermiglie gote.
