Donna leggiadr'et bella
Che con le vostre luci m'accendeste
Il dì che la mia stella
Mi conduss'a veder' l'altere honeste
Vostre belleçe: poichè la mia sorte
M'ha facto vostro non mi date morte.

Beautiful and pretty woman
Whose lights set me on fire
On that day when my star (my fate)
Led me to see your proud and honest
Beauty: as the fate
Made me yours, don't give me death.
