by Giovanni Battista Guarini (1538 - 1612)

Credete voi ch'i' viva
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Credete voi ch' i' viva
pascendo il cor famelico e penoso
del pensier amoroso? Ahi ch' i' ne moro
perché vita e ristoro
ben ho pensando, anima cara, in voi,
ma quando penso poi ch' io ne son privo
moro del cibo onde mi pasco e vivo.
