Siam iti l'altro giorno dal Curato

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Siam iti l'altro giorno dal Curato
Con un regalo, secondo l'usanza,
E là m'apersi, e'n sua presenza ho dato
L'anello di fidanza.

Egli era all'orto, dove ogni mattina
Suol coglier fiori da parar lo altare,
Tolse il più bello ed alla mia Biondina
Lo volle proprio dare.

E come fu del rito il dì fissato,
C'incamminammo entrambi sì festosi,
Che per la strada tutto il vicinato
Dicea: "Viva gli sposi!"
