by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

Del destin non vi lagnate
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Del destin non vi lagnate,
se vi rese a noi soggette;
siete serve ma regnate
nella vostra servitù.
Forti noi, voi belle siete;
e vincete in ogni impresa,
quando vengono a contesa
la bellezza e la virtù.
