Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Alme d’Amor rubelle
che con leggiadri suoni e dolci accenti
frenar potete i venti,
e invaghite di voi l’ardenti stelle:
beato chi v’ascolta e chi vi mira!
Beato chi per voi langue e sospira.

English.png English translation

Souls who rebel against Love,
who with charming songs and sweet words
can stop the winds from blowing
and make the bright stars fall in love with you:
blessed he who hears you and gazes upon you!
Blessed he who for you languishes and sighs.

Translation by Campelli
