Quanto ha di dolce, Amore,
perchè sempre io vi baci,
o dolcissime rose,
in voi tutto ripose.

Deh, deh, s'io potessi
ai vostri dolci baci
La mia vita finire,
O che dolce morire!

English.png English translation

To make me kiss you incessantly,
sweetest roses,
Love has given you
everything irresistible that lies within his power.

Alas, if only
in the midst of your sweet kisses
I could end my life,
what a sweet death that would be.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank

Para que sempre eu vos beije,
ó dulcíssimas rosas,
o Amor vos presenteou
com o que há de mais doce.

Ah, se eu pudesse ao menos
entre vossos doces beijos
a minha vida findar,
ó que doce morrer!

Translation by Carlos Augusto Mourão
