Amor ben mi credevo
ch'ambi madonna e me legati avessi
in un medesmo laccio a fin ch'uguale
il desir fosse e l'ardor immortale,
ma lasso, veggo lei libera e sciolta
da gli amorosi nodi
ed in mille piacer ognor involta,
ed io viepiù che mai legato e preso,
privo d'ogni piacer, pien di tormento,
rimango in vita della vita spento.
