Excerpt

Padre
Quell'altissima un dì creatura
Discacciò, preda a vermi e dolor.
Disputar colle belve la terra
L'uom fu visto, alle belve agguagliato;
Gli elementi gli mossero guerra,
Nulla il vinse: egli grande era ancor.

Ma più grande il fe' guardo d'amore
Ch'ei pentito osò volgere al cielo:
Da quel guardo fu preso il Signore,
Scese un giorno, e coll'uomo s'unì.
Non fu tolta alla colpa ogni pena
Per giudizio ineffabil del Santo,
Ma la _coppa del duol_ fu ripiena
Di quel Dio che coll'uomo patì.

Da quel giorno s'inchina al mortale
Ogni mente che inchinisi a Dio,
Perch'entrambe con palpito eguale
Condivisero gaudio e martìr.
Da quel giorno gli spirti del cielo,
Cui straniera fu sempre sventura,
Santa invidia portaro all'anelo
Che per Dio può con gioia morir.

Dal suo abisso l'eterno perduto
Leva il capo, e con perfido ghigno
Grida:--Vieni, o tu forte caduto!<
