Di fiori adorno avea lo capo bello;
e perché il fiume correa giuso al basso,
però discesi ed appressaime ad ello.

per entro il fiume, udii sonare un corno,
il qual mi tolse allora ogni mio spasso.

Filena disse:--La dea fa ritorno;
oimè, fuggi via tosto;--e poi levosse

Ed incontra alle ninfe ella si mosse,
le qua' tornavan liete con le prede;
ed indi anche Cupido me rimosse,

dicendo a me:--Se Diana ti vede,
170 come Acteon, quando da lei fu visto,

trasmutar ti fará da capo a piede.--
p. 14

di quel che piú desia, e viengli invano,

175 E lagrimando ingavicchiai la mano,
