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

Che mi giova impero e soglio
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Che mi giova impero e soglio,
s’io non voglio uscir di affanni,
s’io nutrisco i miei tiranni
negli affetti del mio cor.
 
Che infelice al mondo io sia,
lo conosco, è colpa mia.
Non è colpa dello sdegno,
non è colpa dell’amor.
