Ah! rammenta, o bella Irene
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Ah! rammenta, o bella Irene,
Che giurasti a me costanza.
Ah ritorna, amato bene,
Ah ritorna al primo amor,
Qual conforto, oh! Dio, m'avanza,
Chi sarà la mia speranza?
Per chi viver più degg'io,
Se più mio non è quel cor?
