La bella Ninfa mia, ch’al Tebro infiora
Col piè le sponde, e co’ begli occhi affrena
Rapido corso, allor che discolora
Le piagge il ghiaccio, con sì dolce pena
A seguir le tue arme m’innamora,
Ch’io piango, e rido, e non la scorgo appena,
Ch’io scopro in lei mille vaghezze ascose,
Ed entro a l’alma un bel giardin di rose.
