Air sérieux

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Doux liens de mon cœur
Aimables peines,
Charmantes chaînes,
De moment en moment
Redoublez mon tourment:
Un cœur exempt de nos tendres allarmes,
Ne ressentit jamais que de foibles douceurs;
C'est dans l'excès de ses rigueurs,
Que l'Amour a caché ses plus doux charmes.
