Abstract

Of late so brightly glowing, Lovely rose,
We here beheld thee growing, Lovely rose;
Thous seem'st some angel's care,
Summer's breath was warm a-round thee,
Summer's beam with beauty crowned thee,
So sweetly fair.
Thou seem'st some angel's care,
Summer's breath was warm around thee,
Summer's beam with beauty crowned thee,
So sweetly fair.

The blast too rudely blowing, Lovely rose,
Thy tender form o'erthrowing, Lovely rose,
Alas! hath laid thee low.
Now amid thy native bed,
Envious weeds with branches spread, Unkindly grow.

No freshening dew of morning, Lovely rose,
Thy infant buds adorning, Lovely rose,
To thee shall day restore.
Zephyrs soft, that late caressed thee,
Evening smiles, that parting blessed thee, Return no more.

Che cosa voul ch'io peschi!
Fidulin.
L'Anel, c he m'e casca,
Colla, bella, &c.

Ti daro Cento Scudi,
Fidulin.
Sta borsa ricama,
Colla bella, &c.

Non voglio Cento Scuid,
Fidulin.
ne borsa ricama,
Colla bella, &c.

Io vo bazin d'amore,
Fidulin.
Che quel mi paghera,
Colla bella sua bocca
Colla bella se ne va.
Fidulin.
