by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

Da quel sembiante appresi
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE
Da quel sembiante appresi
A sospirare amante;
Sempre per quel sembiante
Sospirero d'amor.

La face, a cui m'accesi
Sola m'alletta e piace;
È fredda ogni altra face
Per riscaldarmi il cor.
