Desideri vani

Desideri che?
Desideri che sperate di gioir.
Voi v'ingannate.
Può ben grand' ale
Ingigantito il core
Spiegar al ciel d'amore,
Mentre dalla crudel
Che vi fa guerra
Vostre speranze in terra
Piombano fulminate.
In vano ergete
Ardimentoso il guardo
Ad un seren bugiardo,
Mentr'al vostro salir
Fiere procelle
Dalle nemiche stelle
Vengono minacciate.
Desideri che?
Desideri che sperate di gioir.
Voi v'ingannate.
