Già l'ebro mio ciglio, Orlando's aria from Orlando

Già per la man d'Orlando 
d'ogni mostro più rio
purgato è il mondo!
Ora giunge la notte
dal le cimerie grotte,
ed è seco Morfeo,
che i papaveri suoi
sul crin mi sfronda,
porgendomi a gustar
di Lete l'onda.

Già l'ebro mio ciglio,
quel dolce liquore invita a posar;
Tu, perfido Amore, 
volando o scherzando non farmi destar!
