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

Per quell’affetto
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Per quell’affetto
che l’incatena,
l’ira depone
la tigre armena,
lascia il leone
la crudeltà.
 
Tu delle fiere
più fiero ancora
alle preghiere
di chi t’adora
spogli il tuo petto
d’ogni pietà.
