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

Son qual per mare ignoto
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Son qual per mare ignoto
naufrago passaggiero,
già con la morte a nuoto
ridotto a contrastar.
 
Ora un sostegno ed ora
perde una stella; alfine
perde la speme ancora
e s’abbandona al mar.
