ADRIANA
con vera modestia
Troppo, signori ... troppo! Ecco: respiro appena ....
semplicemente
Io son l'umile ancella del Genio creator :
ei m'offre la favella io la diffondo ai cor...
Del verso io son l'accento,
l'eco del dramma uman,
il fragile strumento vassallo della man
Mite, gioconda, atroce, mi chamo Fedeltà :
un soffio è la mia voce,
che al novo di morrà.
