Siam tre miseri piangenti

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Siam tré miseri piangenti
che tributi ognhor cresciamo
ai più torbidi torrenti
e sfidando a' guerra andiamo
la Fortuna e gli elementi
Siam tré miseri piangenti

Io sospiro un ben distante
idolatro ingrata amante
et io seguo un be' de venti
Siam tré miseri piangenti

Tesoro posseduto
e poi rapito dà subita distanza
Ahi che di pene il cor di Tisio avanza
Mirar che la fera
à fiamma si vera.

Sorrida per gioco son lente son poco
le rabbie di Dite
ermogli Averno pur furie infinite
Ch'ad ogni sembiante
sua fede vacille moltiplica
nell alme Inferni a' mille inferni

Ahi che non è bastante né mente più fonda
né lingua faconda
a' capir e ridir tanti tormenti
Siam tré miseri piangenti
