Original text and translations

Donna, nel mio ritorno
il mio pensiero, a cui nulla pon freno,
precorre dove il ciel è più sereno,
e se ne vien a far con voi soggiorno;
né da voi si diparte
giamai la notte e’l giorno,
perché l’annoia ciascun’altra parte.
Onde sol per virtù del pensier mio,
mentre ne vengo a voi, con voi son io.

English.png English translation

Milady, while I return to you
my thoughts, which nothing restrains,
rush across the most serene sky
and come to abide by you;
never they leave you,
neither at day nor night,
because everywhere else would bore them.
It is, thus, only by virtue of my thoughts
that as I come towards you, I am already with you.

Translation by Campelli

Madame, pendant que je reviens
ma pensée, que rien ne peut frener,
court là où le ciel est plus serein
ett vient séjourner près de vous;
elle ne vous abandonne jamais,
ni la nuit, ni le jour,
car elle s'ennuie d'être ailleurs.
Alors, c'est en vertu de ma seule pensée
que tandis que je vous rejoins, je suis avec vous dèjà.

Translation by Campelli
