Dormo ancora o son desto?

________________________________________________________________

Che contrade rimiro? ________________________________________________________________

Qual aria vi respiro? ________________________________________________________________

E che terren calpesto?________________________________________________________________

Chi fece in me, chi fece________________________________________________________________

il sempre dolce e lusinghevol sonno


__________________________________________________________

ministro de' tormenti,________________________________________________________________

chi cangi il mio riposo in ria sventura?


_______________________________________________________

Qual deit de' dormienti ha cura?


____________________________________________________________

O sonno, o mortal sonno!________________________________________________________________

Fratello della morte altri ti


chiama.___________________________________________________________

Solingo trasportato,________________________________________________________________

deluso ed ingannato,________________________________________________________________

ti conosco ben io, padre


d'errori.____________________________________________________________

Pur degli errori miei son io la


colpa.__________________________________________________________

Ch se l'ombra del
sonno________________________________________________________________

sorella o pur compagna,________________________________________________________________

chi si confida all'ombra________________________________________________________________

perduto alfin contro ragion si lagna.


__________________________________________________________

O di sempre sdegnati,________________________________________________________________

numi non mai placati,________________________________________________________________


contro Ulisse che dorme anco
severi,_________________________________________________________

vostri divini imperi________________________________________________________________

contro l'uman voler sien fermi e


forti,_________________________________________________________

ma non tolgano, ahim, la pace ai


morti.______________________________________________________

Feaci ingannatori,________________________________________________________________

voi pur mi prometteste________________________________________________________________

di ricondurmi salvo________________________________________________________________

in Itaca mia patria________________________________________________________________

con le ricchezze mie, co' miei


tesori.__________________________________________________________

Feaci mancatori,________________________________________________________________

or non so com'ingrati mi lasciaste


___________________________________________________________

in questa riva aperta,________________________________________________________________

su spiaggia erma e
deserta,________________________________________________________________

misero, abbandonato;________________________________________________________________

e vi porta fastosi________________________________________________________________

e per l'aure e per l'onde________________________________________________________________

cos enorme peccato!________________________________________________________________

Se puniti non son s gravi


errori,_____________________________________________________________

lascia, Giove, deh, lascia________________________________________________________________

de' fulmini la cura,________________________________________________________________

ch la legge del caso pi sicura
