by Giovanni Battista Guarini (1538 - 1612)

Crudel, perché mi fuggi
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Crudel, perché mi fuggi
s'hai della morte mia tanto desio?
tu sei pur il cor mio.
Credi tu per fuggire,
crudel, farmi morire?
Ah! non si pò morir senza dolore
e doler non si pò chi non ha core.
