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

O sugli estivi ardori
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
O sugli estivi ardori
placida al sol riposa,
o sta fra l'erbe e i fiori
la pigra serpe ascosa,
se non la preme il piede
di ninfa o di pastor.
 
Ma se calcar si sente,
a vendicarsi aspira
e su l'acuto dente
il suo veleno e l'ira
tutta raccoglie allor.
