Se d’amor, se di contento
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Se d’amor, se di contento
a quei detti, oh dio! non moro,
è portento, o mio tesoro,
è virtù di tua beltà.
Del piacer manco all’eccesso;
ma un tuo sguardo in un momento
poi ravviva il core oppresso
dalla sua felicità.
