Italian.png Italian text

Vostra fui e sarò, mentre ch’io viva.
Faccia ’l ciel ciò che vuole.
Il viver mio così da voi deriva,
Come derivar suole
Ogni ben ch’è fra noi dal chiaro sole.
Dunque credete ch’io
Non vi posi né mai porrò in oblio.

I was yours and shall be whilst I still live;
Let heaven do what it will.
My life takes its substance from you,
As every good thing on earth
Takes its vital force from the sun.
Believe me, I have never forgotten you
And I will never forget you.
