Italian.png Italian text

Correte, amanti, a prova,
A mirar meco quello
Onde s'adorna il mondo e si fa bello!
Vista dolce et acerba in cui si trova
Virtù di forza tale
C'hor breve fa la vita hor immortale.

English.png English translation

Come, lovers, hasten to put things to the test,
to witness with me a certain thing
which adorns the world and gives it all its beauty!
A sight both sweet and bitter which has such might
that life, as it may befall, seems short
or you may feel immortal.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
