Quando nascesti Amore?

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Quando nascesti, Amore?
- Quando la terra si rivestedi verd' et bel colore.
Allor di che nascesti?
- D'un ardore che otio et lascivia in se richiud' et serra.
Con ti constringe a farne tanta guerra?
- Calda speranza et gelido timore.
In cui fai la tua stanza?
- In gentil core che sotto el mio valor' tosto s'atterra.
Chi fai la tua nutrice?
- Giovinezza.
E le serve furno a lei dintorno?
- Vanità, gelosia, pomp' e bellezza.
Di che ti pasci?
- D'un parlare adorno.
Offendeti la mort' o la vecchiaia?
- No, che io rinasco mille volt' il giorno.
