Quant' honestate mai
Involta in mortal velo,
Scese in terra dal cielo,
Scorg' in voi sola, e ogni supremo honore,
Et quanto bello Amore,
Mostro del regno suo, nei vaghi rai,
Scorgo de gliocchi vostri,
Ovunqu'io miri il lor vivo splendore,
Quella s'oppone a tutti i van desiri,
Questo m'infiamma d'amoroso ardore,
Al fin vince il migliore,
Et vuol che si vi riverisca e honori,
Che'n dubio son, s'io v'amo o s'io v'adori.
