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

Guarda pria se in questa fronte
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Guarda pria se in questa fronte
trovi scritto alcun delitto
e dirai che la mia sorte
desta invidia e non pietà.

Bella prova è d'alma forte
L'esser placida e serena
Nel soffrir l'ingiusta pena
D'una colpa che non ha.

N. Vaccaj sets stanza 2
