Amor io non potrei,
Haver da te se non ricca mercede,
Poi che quanto amo lei
Madonna il vede.

Deh fa ch'ella sappi anco
quelche force non crede quant'io sia
Gia presso a venir manco,
Se pur nascos'e a lei la pena mia,
Ch'ella lo sappia fia,
Tanto sollevamento a dolor miei,
Ch'io ne vivro dov'hor me ne morrei.
