Che ancho i feroci si domano.

Even the ferocious can be tamed.


Poi, c’hebbe Antonio con la morte indegna
Di Ciceron, l’alma eloquenza morta,
S’un carro alzò la vincitrice insegna;
E di quel duo leon fur guida e scorta,
Per dimostrar, che la superbia degna
Del Roman sangue bellicoso e scorta,
Rivolta al ben de la sua patria amata,
Havea con l’armi sue vinta e domata.
