Italian.png Italian text

S'io non miro, non moro,
Non mirando, non vivo;
Pur morto io son
Né son di vita privo.
O miracol d'amore,
Ahi, strana sorte,
Che'l viver non fia vita,
E'l morir morte.

English.png English translation

If I look not, I die not;
when I do not look, I am not alive;
yet dead I am,
though my life has not been taken from me.
Oh miracle of love;
alas, strange fate,
that living should not result in life,
nor dying in death.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
