Canto di Bella Bocca

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Che dolce udire una leggiadra Bocca
tutta lieta cantar versi d'amore
Vaga vezzosa voce
con passaggio veloce
t'alletta ti circonda anzi tocca
e dentro và quasi à baciarti il core
che dolce udire una leggiadra Bocca
tutta lieta cantar versi d'amore
mentre musico labro
spiega d'Amore i pregi
Altro non dice
quel canoro felice
che le gioie che senti
che i diletti che proui
che i tuoi piaceri nuovi
i tuoi vecchi contenti

Dillo ò mio core
che dolce udir una leggiadra Bocca
tutta lieta cantar Versi d'Amore
Quell'aura armonizzata
Da una Gorga canora
ti ravviva e ristora
ti fà l'Alma beata
folle sei se non godi e non cominci
qua giù ristretto in un caduco velo
Tirsi à gustar le melodie del Cielo
