Deh lascia anima homai,
Lascia l'imprese vane,
E le voglie mondane,
Che t'han condotti in tanti amari guai!
Alhor cantar potrai,
De la vera speranza il pregio altero;
Ella non ama il canto,
Se non scorge il cor santo,
Lascia il torto sentiero,
E poscia a dir di lei volgi il pensiero.
Fiamma, Oda alla Speranza, Stanza 11
