Si bella vi formo donna natura,
ch'al ciel invidia fate
et a qualonque bell' altra figura,
formata qua giu'n terr'a nostr'etade,
ma se di crudeltade,
priva vi ritrovast' e anchor d'orgoglio,
dir' ei quel dir non soglio,
ch'al mondo non fiamai simil beltade,
s'el ciel e la natura,
poness' in un suggett' ogni lor cura.
