Baci soavi e cari,
cibi della mia vita,
ch'or m'involate or mi rendete il core:
per voi convien ch'impari
come un'alma rapita
non senta il duol di mort'e pur si more.
Quant'ha di dolce amore,
perché sempr'io vi baci,
o dolcissime rose,
in voi tutto ripose;
e s'io potessi ai vostri dolci baci
la mia vita finire,
o che dolce morire!
