Da bei rami scendea dolce nella memoria
Una pioggia di fior sovr’al suo grembo
Et ella si sedea humil in tanta gloria
Coperta gia del amoroso nembo
Qual fior cadea sul lembo
Qual su le treccie bionde
Ch’oro forbito e perle
Eran quel di a vederle
Qual si posava in terra & qual su l’onde
Qual con un vag’errore
Girando parea dir qui regn’amore.
