Per te d' amico aprile
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): GER
Per te d' amico aprile
  Sempre; s' adorni il Ciel;
  Né all' ombra tua gentile
  Posi ninfa crudel,
  Pastore infido.
Fra le tue verdi foglie
  Augel di nere spoglie
  Mai non raccolga il vol;
  E Filomena sol
  Vi faccia il nido.
