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

D'ogni amator la fede
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
D'ogni amator la fede
è sempre mal sicura.
Piange, promette e giura,
chiede, poi cangia amore,
facile a dir che muore,
facile ad ingannar.
E pur non ha rossore
chi un dolce affetto oblia,
come il tradir non sia
gran colpa nell'amar.
