Al par del ruscelletto chiaro

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Al par del ruscelletto chiaro
La tua vita scorra Irene,
Compagne sian le grazie amene,
E l'amistà, virtù e fè.

Il suo rigor, le tue pene
Serbi a noi soli'l fato avaro,
E sia per noi ancor più amaro
Ond' esser prodigo con te.

Irene, dea della pace,
Conserva in lei tranquillo il cor
Del suo filial amor la face
Per lunga età risplenda ancor.

Evviva dunque la bella Irene,
La delizia del nostro amor.
