Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Se tra verdi arbuscelli
O lung'à fresca riva
Di limpidi ruscelli
Vienmi a ferir nel viso
L'aura di Paradiso
Amor sovvienm'il giorno
Che spirò la dolcissima mia Diva
L'aura al mio cor intorno
Per cui se tutto avvampo
E l'aura e il foco
Mi fia gradito in ogni tempo e loco.

English.png English translation

If among green trees
or at a fresh place
near a limpid river
a soft breeze
touches my face,
then I remember that day when
my beloved gave me
for which if now I burn,
I enjoy everytime and everywhere
either wind or fire.

Translation by Andrea Friggi
