Femmisi inanzi Amor
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Femmisi inanzi Amor la Donna mia
In pietoso sembiante honesta e bella,
Quel era il dí ch'ella mi piacque pria,
E io la salutai, ed io la salutai. Ma per ria sorte
Essa qual Cerv' assai leggier' e snella
Prese disdegno sett' a fuggir forte.
All' hor io mosso per seguir la corsi,
Sperand' in sin ch'un nugolett' intorno
La ricoverse, ond' io lasso m'accorsi,
Ch'ella fu tua messagia a far mi scorno.
