by Antonio Salvi (1664 - 1724)

Cadrò, ma qual si mira
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Cadrò, ma qual si mira
Parte cader dal monte
Della sassosa fronte
Che quant'a lei s'oppone
Urta, fracassa e seco
Precipitando va.

E se non resta oppresso
Dalla fatal ruina,
Sente da lunge anch'esso
Attonito 'l pastore
Lo strepito del colpo
Ch'impallidir lo fa.
