Neghittosi or voi che fate?, Dalinda's aria from Ariodante

Ingrato Polinesso,
e in che peccai,
che con la morte
ricompensi amore?
Ah, sì, questo è l'error,
troppo t'amai.

Neghittosi or voi che fate?
fulminate, Cieli,
omai sul capo all'empio!

Fate scempio dell'ingrato,
del crudel che m'ha tradita,
impunita t'empietà riderà
nel veder poi fulminato 
qual che scoglio o qual che tempio.
