La mia turca che d'amor

Language: Italian (Italiano)

La mia turca, che d'amor
Non ha fè.
Torce il piè.
S'io le narro il mio dolor,
Ond'al doppio mio martoro
Languendo moro.

Poi rornita se ne sta
E non vol
Che del sol
Goda pur di sua beltá.
Ond'al doppio mio martoro
Languendo moro.

Per la cruda intenerir
Non mi val
Nel mio mal
Prego, lacrime o sospir.
Ond'al doppio mio martoro
Languendo moro.

Di me ride e dell’arcier
che nel sen
de velen
tutti sparse i miei pensier,
ond’al doppio mio martoro,
languendo, moro.

Prendi l’arco invitto Amor,
per pietà
in lei fa
che non sia tanto rigor.
ond’al doppio mio martoro,
io più non moro.
