by Grazio Braccioli (1682 - 1752)

Chiara al pari di lucida stella
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Chiara al pari di lucida stella  
scintillando tua candida fede
prometteva mercede al mio amor.

Ma il pensier di lasciarmi crudele
fa temer, che non sia sempre bella
la facella, onde avvampa il mio cor.
