Dolci alpestre parole
Movea cantando semplicetta e bella,
Leggiadra pastorella,
E cogliendo talhor herbetta o fiore,
Di lor s'ornava il seno d'acerbi pomi e candide viole,
E puro latte pieno
Onde io temendo Amore
Di pensier casti mi forniva il core,
Quando ecco fuor un serpe uscir armando il fiato di veleno,
Ella gridando aita,
Mi fuggi in braccio ed io perdei la vita.
