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

Chi può dir che rea son io
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Chi può dir che rea son io
guard'in volto all'idol mio;
e le scuse del mio core
da quel volto intenderà.
Da quel volto in cui ripose
fausto il ciel, benigno amore
tante cifre luminose
di valore e di beltà.
