Io lo so, che il bel sembiante
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Io lo so, che il bel sembiante 
Un istante, oh Dio! mirai, 
E mai più da quell'istante 
Non lasciai di sospirar.

Io lo so; lo sanno queste
Valli ombrose, erme foreste
Che han da me quel nome amato 
Imparato a replicar.
