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

Se un bell'ardire
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Se un bell’ardire
può innamorarti,
perché arrossire,
perché sdegnarti
di quello strale
che ti piagò?
Chi si fe’ chiaro
per tante imprese
già grande al paro
di te si rese,
già della sorte
si vendicò.
