che tempo di gioire non è.

Dì ad Irene, tiranna,
infedele ria,

dille ch'un core qual è il mio,

Dille, barbara, dille...
Ma ché?
No, che basta
alla pura mia fè,
di veder quei begli occhi sereni
con la prima amorosa pietà.

Se nasce un rivoletto
fra duri alpestri sassi
tosto incamina i passi

Io sola al mio diletto
starmi godrei d'appresso,
e pur non m'è concesso
che raggirarmi altrove,
e sospirar.

Del supremo Tonante
messaggero fedel
qui corro a volo,
d'un bel fato costante
per pubblicar la gloria in questo suolo.
E s'audì, 'l sommo Giove i voti ardenti
delle Britanne genti,
che per l'alto Imeneo
l'una a gara dell'altra al Ciel porgeo.
E decretò quel fulgido motore
che de' sposi graziosi, augusti, generosi
formerebbe un sol cor, celeste amore:
che darian di virtù glorioso esempio:
che saria di lor fama il mondo d'un tempio:
che goderian d'una felice calma:
che dal livor sempre otterian la palma:
e che a pro di ciascun, il Ciel fecondo
daria lor prole ad illustrar il mondo.
