Quanto più caro faj

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Quanto più caro faj,
donnd, guardarm' un poco
più mi s'accende 'l foco
da tuo' begli occhi non partir giamaj.

Se per mostrart' a me sevaggia e nova
Speri ch'i' lasci d'amarti 'l volere,
e non sarà che 'l contrario fa prova
più si disia quel ch'è  dur' ad avere.

Ma vuol' el mio piacere,
allo che 'l tuo si move
a riguardar altrove.
Da te seguir non partirò giamaj.

Quanto più varo faj ...
