by Adriano Morselli (flourished 1674-1691)

Affetti del cor mio non vi condanno
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Affetti del cor mio non vi condanno,  
se mi volete rea, ma rea d'amore,
al regno, ed all'amor serva un inganno,
se son regno, ed amor pace del core,
l'affetto che del cor si fa tiranno,
assolve dal rimorso il traditore,
se in trono un caro sposo amor si gode,
lascia d'esser delitto ancor la frode.
