Excerpt

tuo scettro
Come fil non ritorto, e me da questi
Ceppi redimerà; nè ti varranno,
Credi, i fulmini allor, chè assai più salda
Sarà del fulmin tuo la sua possanza.
Forse Giove non cadde? Ahi! ma il secondo
Dei vaticinii miei sperdeano i venti!
Qui fra' ceppi io rimasi: ad un tiranno
Tiranno altro successe, e meco avvinto
Restò in preda agli affanni ogni uom mortale.
Or che parli tu mai? Cadde a buon dritto
E dopo assai di mali esperimento
L'alta speranza mia; nè agevol cosa
È il ridestarla, ed utile per certo
Non mi saría, quando più tetro e fiero
Sembra il dolor cui la speranza illuse.
Pur, se grave non t'è l'esser pietoso
A chi tanto per l'uom male sostenne,
Al mio partito interrogar rispondi:
Uom mortale sei tu? Qual t'assecura
O responso, o destino, onde presumi
Condurre a fin tant'onorata impresa?
Non t'illude il voler, che dei più saggi
