by Vittorio Amedeo Cigna-Santi (c1730 - 1795)

Vado incontro al fato estremo
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Vado incontro al fato estremo,  
crudo ciel, sorte spietata;
ma frattanto un'alma ingrata
l'ombra mia precederà.

Vuo', che almeno altrui non giovi
il rigor della mia stella;
vuo', che alfin crudel mi trovi
chi sprezzò la mia pietà.
