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

Se povero il ruscello
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Se povero il ruscello
Mormora lento e basso,
Un ramoscello, un sasso
Quasi arrestar lo fa.

Ma se alle sponde poi
gonfio d'umor sovrasta,
argine oppor non basta,
e co' ripari suoi
torbido al mar sen va.

N. Vaccaj sets stanza 1
