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

Sai che piegar si vede
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Sai che piegar si vede
il docile arboscello,
che vince allor che cede
de' turbini al furor.
 
Ma quercia che ostinata
sfida ogni vento a guerra
trofeo si vede a terra
dell'austro vincitor.
