by Vittorio Amedeo Cigna-Santi (c1730 - 1795)

Soffre il mio cor con pace
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Soffre il mio cor con pace  
una beltà tiranna,
l'orgoglio d'un audace,
no, tollerar non sa.

M'affanna, e non m'offende
chi può negarmi amore,
ma di furor m'accende
chi mio rival si fa.
