Quando la donna mia,
Gira ver me lo sguardo,
Immantinente mi consumo et ardo,
Restando il core da gl'affanni sciolto,
Tal prend' indi diletto,
Che si estingua la fiamma non aspetto,
Ma s'ella ha'l lume in altra parte volto,
Lontana ohime dal pallido mio volto,
Tosto m'assale il petto aspro dolore,
E smarito rimango in fosco horrore.
