Il contrasto de' cinque Sensi

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Chi di noi vaglia più
e di gioia maggior ministro sia
fiera lite ogn'or fù
io miro lo sento io gusto lo fiuto io tocco
e nella donna mia
tal'hor anco merce d'un picciol bacio
tutto trabocco
tocca pur quanto sai che nel sol tocco
Amore il verace gioir non pose mai
ne sia giudice il cor mesto e languente
ohimè senti ch'il cor dentro ci dice
ch'un sol bacio ch'è niente il fà felice.
