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

Non so se la speranza
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Non so se la speranza
va con l'inganno unita,
so che mantiene in vita
qualche infelice almen.
So che sognata ancora
gli affanni altrui ristora
la sola idea gradita
del sospirato ben.
