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

Non giova il sospirar
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Non giova il sospirar, no,
Non lagrimar per me.
Tirsi più tuo non è,
Licori infida;
Godi del nuovo amor.
Troverà tirsi ancor
Ninfa, se non più bella,
Almen di te più fida, sì.
