Rompe Sprezza

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Rompe sprezza
Rompe sprezza con un sospir.
Rompe sprezza con un sospir
ogni cor benchè di pietra,
benchè di pietra;

essa e dai numi l'alma impetra,
essa e dai numi l'alma impetra ogni gratia,
ogni gratia, ogni gratia ai suoi desir,
essa e dai numi l'alma in impetra,
essa e dai numi l'alma in petra impetra ogni gratia,
ogni gratia ai suoi desir.
