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

Puoi vantar le tue ritorte
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Puoi vantar le tue ritorte,
fortunato prigioniero,
tu che amore hai condottiero
sul camin della virtù.
 
Tu non dei, com'è la sorte
di color che amore inganna,
arrossir d'una tiranna,
vergognosa servitù.
