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

Potria fra tante pene
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Potria fra tante pene
lasciar l’amato bene
chi un cor di tigre avesse
né basterebbe ancor.
Che quel pietoso affetto,
che a me si desta in petto,
senton le tigri istesse,
quando le accende amor.
