Dissi a l'amata mia, lucida stella
Che più d'ogn' altra luce,
Ed al mio cor adduce
Fiamme, strali e catene,
Ch'ogn'hor mi danno pene:
"Deh! morirò, cor mio.
Sì, morirai, ma non per mio desio."

German.png German translation

Ich sagte zu meinem geliebten klaren Stern,
daß er mehr als alle anderen leuchte
und meinem Herzen zufüge
Flammen, Strahlen und Ketten,
die mir alle Zeit Qualen bringen.
Ach, ich werde sterben, mein Herz,
auch du wirst sterben, aber nicht für mich, Geliebte.
Translation by Peter Rottländer
