Concert Arie für die Sopran‑Stimme mit...

Language: Italian (Italiano)

 Infelice ! già dal mio sguardo si dileguò...
 La mia presenza l'iniquo non sostenne,
 la mia presenza non sostenne,
 e pur odiar, e pur odiar nol posso ancor!
 Rammenta al fine i falli, i torti suoi,
 risveglia la tua virtù! 
 Risveglia la tua virtù! Scordati l'empio traditor !...
 Amante sventurata !... E l'amo pur ?...
 Così fallace amore le tue promesse attendi ?
 Tu non mai rendi la rapita quiete ?
 Queste son le speranze e l'ore liete ?

 Ah, ritorna, età felice,
 quando accanto del mio bene
 non conosci queste pene,
 quando a me fù fido ancor.

 Ah, se volgo gli occhi intorno,
 mi rammento sempre il giorno,
 che ricevi la sua fè.
 Quel tenero arboscello,
 quel limpido ruscello
 parla mi del suo amor.

 Invan, invano!
 Non v'è contento
 senza tormento nell' amor!
 E pur la memoria 
 dei giorni d'amore 
 l'amaro dolore può sol consolar!
