Chi vuol veder' un Sole
in negro velo avvolto?
miri la donna mia che'l cor m'ha tolto
che s'all'abito altrui mostro dolore,
nel viso ha gioia e ne' begli occhi Amore.

English.png English translation

Who wishes to see a Sun
wrapped in a black veil?
Look at my lady who stole my heart,
for though by her garb she shows sorrow,
she has joy in her face and Love in her beautiful eyes.

Translation by Allen Garvin
