Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Io son fenice, e voi sete la fiamma
Che m’arde a dramma
Ma la morte m’è dolce si gradita
Che per anco morir ritorno in vita.

English.png English translation

I am the phoenix and you the flame
which burns me so dramatically
But this death is sweet and welcome to me
Because, though I die, I return to life.

Translation by James Gibb
