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

Tu di pietà mi spogli
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Tu di pietà mi spogli,
tu desti il mio furor,
tu solo o traditor
mi fai tiranno.
Non dirmi, no, spietato.
È il tuo crudel desio,
ingrato, e non son io
che ti condanno.
