Sfrondate o sacre dive
Longh'il famoso Po palm' ed allori
E fatte risonar le ricche sponde
Poi che d'altiera fronde
Sfrondat' e scielta dal alor del sole
Altiera di Cremona son le piagge
Dunque dolci rumori
Sgombrino l'altrui voglie aspre e selvagge
Sì che le genti e'l cielo ed ogni stella
Celebr' ed orn' hormai l'alta Isabella.
