by Torquato Tasso (1544 - 1595)

Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Amarilli, s'io te miro,
miro il sol degli occhi miei:
tanto bella e vaga sei
ch'io per altra non sospiro.

Se tu ridi, il dolce riso
m'apre il ciel di primavera:
o sei cruda o lusinghiera,
sempre ho innanzi il tuo bel viso.

Se tu parli ed io ti sento,
sento un'aura in mezzo aprile,
si soave, si gentile,
ch fa dolce il mio tormento.
