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

Se del fiume altera l’onda
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Se del fiume altera l’onda
tenta uscir dal letto usato,
corre a questa, a quella sponda
l’affannato agricoltor.
 
Ma disperde in su l’arene
il sudor, le cure e l’arti,
che se in una ei lo trattiene,
si fa strada in cento parti
il torrente vincitor.
