by Niccolò Minato (1630 - 1698)

Chi ha nemica la fortuna
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Chi ha nemica la fortuna  
viver lieto mai non speri,
ogni gioia
si fa noia
sempr'avversa, ed importuna
la ritrovi a' tuoi pensieri.
Quand'il crine altrui ritolse
usa poi costumi fieri.
Ogni bene
cangia in pene,
e tormenti solo aduna,
ove pria donò piaceri.
