Afflitti spirti mei,
Non sperate giamai d'haver più pace
Poi ch'a madonna si il vostro mal piace
Ben vi credesti gioir nei primmi anni,
Ch’amor la cara liberta vi tolse,
Si sur dolci l’inganni,
Ei lacc’al cor s’avolse,
Fin che l’ingrato discoprir gli volse,
Piangere donque i vostri gravi danni,
Da ch’a chi sola ve potria dar pace,
Si’l vostro mal afflitti spirti piace.
