by Giovanni Battista Guarini (1538 - 1612)

Non piú guerra, pietate
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Non piú guerra, pietate,
pietate, occhi miei belli,
occhi miei trionfanti! A che v'armate
contr'un cor ch'è già preso, e vi si rende?
Ancidete i rubelli,
ancidete chi s'arma e si difende,
non chi, vinto, v'adora.
Volete voi ch'io mora?
Morrò pur vostro, e del morir l'affanno
sentirò sí, ma sarà vostr'il danno.
