Fa una canzona

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Fa una canzona senza note nere
Se mai bramasti la mia grazia havere
Falla d'un tuo nó ch'invita al dormire
Dolcemente, dolcement facendola finire.

Per entro non vi spargere durezze
Che le mie orecchie non vi sono avezze
Falla d'un tuo nó ch'invita al dormire
Dolcemente, dolcement facendola finire.

Ne vi far cifra o segno contra segno
Sopra ogni cosa quest'è'l mio disegno
Falla d'un tuo nó ch'invita al dormire
Dolcemente, dolcement facendola finire.

Con questo stile il fortunato Orfeo
Proserpina la giù placar poteo,
Questo è lo stile che quetar già feo
Con dolcezza a Saul lo spirto reo!
