Se Romeo t'uccise un figlio, Romeo's aria from I Capuletti ed I Montecchi

Se Romeo t'uccise un figlio
In battaglia a lui diè morte;
Incolpar ne dêi la sorte;
Ei ne pianse e piange ancor.
Deh! ti placa, e un altro figlio
Trovai nel mio signor.

La tremenda ultrice spada
A brandir Romeo si appresta :
Come folgore funesta
Mille morti apporterà.
Ma vi accusi al cielo irato
Tanto sangue invan versato;
Ma su voi ricada il pianto
Che alla patria costerà.
