Ardo per te, mio bene
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER
Ardo per te, mio bene, ma l'ardore
Spira dolce aura al core.
Moro per te, mia vita, ma il morire
gioia divien, dolcissimo il languire.
Felice sorte, ancor ch'io arda e moia:
L'ardor divien dolce aura, el morir gioia.
