by Vittorio Amedeo Cigna-Santi (c1730 - 1795)

Tu sai per chi m'accese
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Tu sai per chi m'accese  
quanto sopporto anch'io,
e pur l'affanno mio
non cangiasi in furor.

Potrei punirlo, è vero,
ma tollero le offese,
e ancora non dispero
di vincere quel cor.
