La bella Greca, onde'l pastor ideo,
in gloriosa fiamm' íl suo temp' arse,
s'al vostro lume di mia morte reo,
s'al vostre lume, potess' hoggi aguagliarsi,
perder ebbe sua prova.

O, chiaro splendor d'Adria Helena nova,
che da begli occhi ond' Amor vuol ch'io moia,
e vinto il ciel non pure Sparta Troia.
