Italian.png Italian text

 Hor vi riconfortate in vostre fole,
 Gioveni, e misurate il tempo largo,
 Che piaga anteveduta assai men dole.
 Forse ch'indarno mie parole spargo,
 Ma io v'annuntio che voi sete offesi
 Di un grave e mortifero letargo,
 Che volan l'hore i giorni e gl'anni ei mesi.
 E'insieme, col brevissimo intervallo,
 Tutti havemo a cercar altri paesi.
(Trionfo del Tempo,70-78)
