Ch'io t'abbandono in periglio sì grande

Language: Italian (Italiano)

   Ch'io t'abbandono
In periglio sì grande! Ah no; sarebbe
Fra le imprese d'Achille
La prima una viltà. Vivi sicura;
Lascia pur di tua sorte a me la cura.

             Tornate sereni,
                 Begli astri d'amore;
                 La speme baleni
                 Fra il vostro dolore:
                 Se mesti girate,
                 Mi fate morir.

             Oh Dio! Lo sapete,
                 Voi soli al mio core,
                 Voi date e togliete
                 La forza e l'ardir!

             Cedo alla sorte
                 Gli allori estremi;
                 Non son più forte
                 Per contrastar.
