by Vittorio Amedeo Cigna-Santi (c1730 - 1795)

Se di lauri il crine adorno
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Se di lauri il crine adorno    
fide spiagge, a voi non torno,
tinto almen non porto il volto
di vergogna, e di rossor.

Anche vinto, ed anche oppresso
io mi serbo ognor l'istesso,
e vi reco in petto accolto
sempre eguale il mio gran cor.
