Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Al primo vostro sguardo
Fui d'amoroso dardo
Ferito così forte
Ch'io grido: "O dolci lumi,
Fate ch'io non consumi!"

English.png English translation

At your first look
I was by a loving arrow
So deeply wound
That I cry "Oh sweet lights,
Please let me not wear out!"
