Non ho il core all’arti avvezzo
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Non ho il core all’arti avvezzo;
non v’è ben per me sincero,
se comprar si deve a prezzo
d’innocenza e di candor.
 
Qual acquisto è che ristori
dall’angustie, da’ timori,
dal disprezzo di sé stesso,
dall’accuse d’un rossor.
