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

Ho perduto il mio tesoro
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Ho perduto il mio tesoro,
Ogni speme ho già smarrita:
Odio il giorno, odio la vita,
Più non splende il Sol per me.

M'ha rapito il fato avaro
[Quanto]1 al mondo a me fu caro:
Mi lasciò colei che adoro,
Altro ben per me non v'è.
