Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Quel ‘no’ crudel che la mia speme ancise
Ecco che pur trafitto
Da mille baci di mia bocca ultrice,
Qual fiera serpe in mezzo ai fiori essangue,
Tra quelle belle labbra a morte langue.
O vittoria felice! In quel vago rossor
Gli amanti scritto leggan:
«Di quel bel volto ha vinto Amore.»
Amor vince ogni core.

German.png German translation

Jenes grausame 'Nein', das meine Hoffnung zerstört
Es ist jetzt durchbohrt
von tausend Küssen meines rächenden Mundes,
einer zwischen Blumen verblutenden wilden Schlange
Auf diesen schönen Lippen liegt es sterbend
Oh glücklicher Sieg! In jener zarten Röte
mögen die Liebenden lesen:
„Von diesem schönen Antlitz wurde Amor besiegt.“
Amor besiegt jedes Herz.
