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

Lo stesso in diversi modi
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
L'augelletto in lacci stretto
Perché mai cantar s'ascolta?
Perché spera un'altra volta
Di tornare in libertà.

Nel conflitto sanguinoso
quel guerrier perché non geme?
Perché gode colla speme
quel riposo che non ha.

N. Vaccaj sets stanza 1
