Alla dolce ombra d'una verde riva,
Pascendo il gregge Endemion se'n giva,
Quando Cinthia gentile,
Bella più che mai foss' in atto humile,
Dimmi diss' ò Pastore,
Ove nasce il bon bacio? ei disse in Cipro,
Ella rispose non, dalla tua bocca
Nasce, e un dolce bacio all'hor li scocca,
Indi volando al cielo,
Lasciò il miser Pastor tra fiamma e gelo.
