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

Non temer ch’io mai ti dica
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Non temer ch’io mai ti dica
alma infida, ingrato core;
possederti ancor nemica
chiamerò felicità.
Io detesto la follia
d’un incomodo amatore
che a’ pensieri ancor vorria
limitar la libertà.
