Original text and translations
“Clorinda false, adieu thy love torments me;
Let Thyrsis have thy heart, since he contents thee.
O grief and bitter anguish,
for thee I languish.
fain I alas would hide it.
O but who can abide it?
I can, I cannot I abide it.
Adieu, adieu, adieu then,
farewell leave me, death now desiring,
thou hast, lo, thy requiring.”
Thus spake Philistus, on his hook relying,
and sweetly, sweetly, sweetly fell adying.
