Italian.png Italian text

T'amai, m'amasti ingrata,
Nel seggio del tuo core
Visse Fè, visse Amore.
Hor in te dispietata,
(Folle chi più ti crede)
Morto Amor, morta è Fede;
E per me morti (ahi lasso)
Giaccion sepolti entro'l tuo cor di sasso.

(In the original the poem's first line is Amai, m'amasti...)
