by Paolo Antonio Rolli (1687 - 1765)

Non ti fidar
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Non ti fidar, perchè il desire lusinga è ver!
Mà poi sovente Amor è falso e il tempo inganna.
Chi vuol goder, ho inteso a dire,
fissa il pensier nel ben presente:
chè l'avvenire ha in man la sorte cieca e tiranna.
