A Voi Londonio invio
queste mie basse note e questo canto,
e vi prego di cuor come desio,
vi degnate di far lor scudo e manto,
e di tenerle accanto
a ciò col vostro lume e col favore:
sian di vaghezza ornate e di splendore.

English.png English translation

To You, Londonio, I send
these lowly notes of mine and this song,
and I beg you from my heart, as I desire
you to make them your shield and mantle,
and to keep them close
alongside with your light and with your favor,
to be adorned ornately and with splendor.

Translation by Allen Garvin
