Conosco il vostro stato, fior gentile

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Conosco il vostro stato, fior gentile,
Non è dover che v'abbassiate tanto
D'amarmi me che son povera e vile,
Ché voi de' belli ne portate il vanto:
E voi de' belli il vanto ne portate,
Conosco ben che voi mi canzonate;
Voi mi burlate, e me lo dice ognuno,
Ma siete bello, e perciò vi perdono.
