Abbonda di virtù

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Abbonda di virtù ch è sanza vizio,
aerva d'amor con fè sanz'altro indizio.

Amor non pregia forza nè richezza,
nè gente di nazion, nè d'alto stato,
vuol senno, con vitù et gentileza
di cuore et sie cortese et insegnato.

Cui d'onestà quel sir vedrà dotato,
per servo lui terrrà nel suo ospizio.

Abbonda di virtù ....
