Pur venisti, cor mio,
E pur t'hò quì presente e pur ti veggio
E non dormo e non sogno e non vaneggio.
Venisti sì, ma fuggi
Sì ratto che mi struggi.
Ahi, fuggitiva vista de gl'amanti,
Come sogno sei tu d'occhi vegghianti!

English.png English translation

Yet you came, my heart,
and while I have you here and see you,
I do not sleep, nor dream, nor am delirious.
You came, true, but fled
so fast, that you destroy me.
Ah, fleeting vision of lovers,
you are like a daydream!

Translation by Campelli
