Non giacinti o narcisi,
ma piccioletti fior siamo, che Amore
manda a voi, di beltà candido fiore.
O, se il sol de' vostri occhi,
pur un poco ne tocchi,
saran vil alghe poi
e narcisi e giacint’a fronte a noi.

French.png French translation

Nous ne sommes ni jacinthes ni narcisses
Mais de minuscules fleurs que l'amour
vous envoie, belle fleur d'innocence.
Oh, que le soleil de vos yeux
nous effleure un seul instant
et jacinthes et narcisses ne seront plus
dès lors qu'algues viles en comparaison.

German.png German translation

Weder Hyazinthen noch Narzissen sind wir,
aber kleine Blumen, die die Liebe
Euch schickt. Euch, der Schönheit makelloser Blume.
Oh, wenn die Sonne eurer Augen
auch nur kurz auf uns fiele,
dann erschienen wie gemeine Algen
Narzissen und Hyazinthen neben uns!
