Alma d'Amor gioiosa hor che sospiri,
   Per soverchio diletto,
Dunque il piacer d'amor recca martiri,
   Si dov' ha tropp' affetto,
   Ma chi pon fren' a suoi maggior desiri,
   Sperar mende l'obietto,
      Et s'huom la spem' adempie ond' i sospiri,
      Da continuo sospetto,
      O nuov' e stran' effetto,
Fals' amorosa voglia,
      Se dal suo maggior ben nasce la doglia.
