by Antonio Salvi (1664 - 1724)

Prendi quel ferro, barbaro
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Prendi quel ferro, o barbaro,
quest'innocente svena!
Figlio, ben mio, perdonami
ma tu mi guardi, o caro!
Ahi, che momento amaro,
sento spezzarsi il cor.

Se non ti basta il sangue
del figlio mio infelice,
svena la genitrice,
bevi il mio sangue ancor.
