Io mi pensai che spento fusse'l foco
Ch'adamar voi m'inchina
E gli ard'hor piu e piu mi s'avicina
Sdegno mi fé parer che 'l fusse spento
Ma l'empia gelosia
Me'l raccese via piu che fiamm'al vento
E voi nimica mia
Piu bell'ogni hor vi fat'e manco pia
Ma se pietat' havess' alma Nanina
Il diro pur voi sareste divina.
