Adamo. Deh qual rimbombo là sù in alto ascolto ,

Forse con simil voce
Ne discaccia dal Mondo, il Cielo irato,
E ne condanna de l'abisso al fondo ?
Quante saette, ò quante
Atteran selue, e boschi, ò quanti, ò quanti
Venti fremon per l'aria ;
Quanto scende dal Cielo
Humor converso in grosse palle, in gielo.

Eva.

Lassi noi, che da l'alto
Diluviano tant'acque,
Che trabboccano i riui,
E'n superbiti i fiumi
Van le belue fugando,
E di boschi, e di selue
Gli humidi pesci habitator si fanno.

ADAMO. Fuggiamo, obimè fuggiamo

Dè monti à quelle cime
Où il Ciel sembra c'hoggi
Dal lungo fulminar stanco s'appoggi.
