"O! fair Cedaria"
di anonimo

O! fair Cedaria, hide those eyes
That hearts enough have won;
For whosoever sees them dies,
And cannot ruin shun.
Such beauty and charms are seen
United in your face,
The proudest can't but own you queen
Of beauty, wit and grace.
Then pity me, who am your slave,
And grand me a reprieve;
Unless I may your favour have,
I can't one moment live.
