Italian.png Italian text

Se à le rose, se à gigli à le viole,
Co'l vago e bel sembiante,
Il vago il verd'e il bel porge Violante,
Se de begli occhi un giro,

S'un riso s'un sospiro,
Farmi felice suole,
Chi non dirà ch'al mondo nel bel viso,
N'apre la primavera e'l Paradiso.

Quanto piu cresce in me d'amor l'ardore,
Tanto vien men l'ardire,
Perciò non oso dire,

Ch'i bei vostr'occhi m'han furato il core,
E sol mirando voi morendo i vivo,
E di voi sempre penso i parlo e scrivo.
