Quando lo miro
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Quando lo miro io non saprei
staccar da lui gli occhi e ’l desir, 
e nel deliro de’ sensi miei 
dirgli vorrei: Per te sospiro. 
Ma dentro l’alma voce mi grida: 
S’ami tua calma, fuggi l’infido, 
che in bella salma cor fier s’annida.
