Ben sempre deggio render gratie al Cielo,
ch'a Ninfa si gentil leggiadra e bella,
A Felismena a quella chi diedi l'alm'e'l core
in servitu d'amore,
mi strinse mi legò con aureo laccio,
E pur fatto prigion libero e vivo,
Ne l'amoroso impaccio
tant'ha virtu l'aspetto adorno e divo,
Ahi che di Felismena il dolce sguardo,
fu a gl'occhi un sol al cor pungente dardo.
