Che chos'è quest'amor

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Che chos'è quest'amor che 'l ciel produce
Per far più manifesta la tuo luce?

Ell'é tanto vezos' onest e vagha,
legiadr' e gratios' adorn'  e bella,
ch'a chi la guarda, subito 'l cor piagha
con gl'ochi bel che kucon più che stella.

E a cuj lice star fiso a vederla
Tutta gioya e virtù in se cinduce.

Che chos'è quest'amor ...
