Il nocchier, che si figura
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Il nocchier, che si figura
Ogni scoglio, ogni tempesta
Non si lagni se poi resta
Un mendico pescator.

Darsi in braccio ancor conviene
Qualche volta alla fortuna;
che sovente in ciò ch’avviene
la fortuna ha parte ancor.
