Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Amor, e'l ver, fu meco
a dir che quelle ch'i vidi
eran bellezz'al mondo sole,
mai non vendute piu sotto le stelle,
ne si pietosi e si dolci parole s'udiron
mai ne lagrime si belle,
di si begl'occhi uscir mai vid'il sole.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Amor - het is de waarheid! - was bij mij, om te zeggen, dat de vrouwen
Die ik zag, schoonheden waren, enig ter wereld,
Nooit méér gezien onder de sterren;
Ook hoorde men nooit zo meedogende en zo zoete woorden,
En nooit zag de zon zo schone tranen
Vloeien uit zo schone ogen.
