TESTO DEL LIED"Sylvia, how could you"
di John Dryden (1631-1700)
Sylvia, how could you e're mistrust
A passion so sincerely true?
Why would you be to me unjust,
For fear I should be so to you?
Such fears will teach us to despise
your power, which else would fatal prove.
Oh! trust to the brightness of your eyes,
And yield to the charming God of Love.
