Siringa al bel Narciso,
Dicea tremante e pia,
Dimmi gentil Pastore,
Dove nasc' il bon bacio,
Quand' ei con un sorriso,
Rispose in Cipri ò delle Ninfe honore,
Ahi dolce anima mia,
Nasce nelle tue labra e nel mio core,
Diss' ella e diegl' un bacio,
Poi fuggì sì veloce,
Ch'ei pers' a un punto e speme, e spirto e voce.
