Mille spirti infernali havean giurato,
Estinguere nel mondo l'honestade,
Quando fur vinti dalla tua beltade,
Ond' ora lice in terr' esser beato,
Era Cupido un Garzon empio ingrato,
E'l regno suo ripien di crudeltade,
Quando tu mi ponesti la pietade,
Ond' hora lice amando esser amato.

Spenta era nelle donne ogni virtute,
Quand' a te ne fu data Signoria,
Ond' hora lice amar la servitute,
Tu bella tu gentile honesta e pia,
Tu sei mio sol mio specchio e mia salute,
Ond' hora lice a me chiamarti mia.
