Se giunge un dispetto, Poppea's aria from Agrippina

Se Ottone m'ingannò,
e s'egli ingrato un dolce amor
al fasto suo soggetta,
del cor offeso è giusto la vendetta.

Se giunge un dispetto 
a' danni del cor,
si cangia nel petto 
l'amore in furor

Non ama chi offende,
o segue l'Amor,
il cor si diffende
da efimero ardor.
