La bella man vi stringo,
E voi le ciglia per dolor stringete,
E mi chiamate ingiusto,et inhumano,
Come tutto il gioire
Sia mio, vostro il martire:
e non vedete che se questa è la mano,
Che tien stretto il cor mio, giusto è'l dolore,
Perche stringendo lei stringo il mio core.

Guarini, Rime, madr. 61
