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

Ciglio che al sol si gira
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Ciglio che al sol si gira
Non vede il sol che mira,
Confuso in quell'istesso
Eccesso di splendor.

Chi lá del Nil cadente
Vive alle sponde apresso,
Lo strepito non sente
del rovinoso umor.
