Clorinda hai vinto
Or prendi l'armi,
Crudel che poi più farmi
S'io mor nel tuo bel seno?
Ma se qualche pietà merita il vinto,
Non far vendetta almeno
D'huom che ferito giace
Né più gridar guerra, ma pace.

Translation by Allen Garvin
Clorinda you have won
Now you take up arms,
What more cruel thing can you do to me
If I die on your lovely breast?
But if the vanquished warrants some mercy
At least do not take revenge
On the man who wounded lies,
Cry no longer war, but peace.
