Mostrava in ciel l’alba di gigli e rose
Coronat’il bel crin quando s’unio
La mia bocca la bocca del ben mio;
Restai priv’al’hor di vita, Meschino me!
Quando senti doppiarsi la ferita
O sventurato me!

Spuntavan fuor da l’oceano i raggi
Lucidissim’il sol quando s’udio
Ragionarmi pian pian cosi il cor mio;
Fa contento le tue voglie, Beato te,
Che del servir il frutto al fin si coglie
O fortunato te!

English.png English translation

The Dawn was appearing in the sky
with her head crowned with roses and lilies when they met.
My mouth has the mouth of my beloved
so I was without life: Alas me!
When I felt my wound doubling
Unlucky me!

The Sun was rising with his radiant rays
from the ocean when it was heard.
My heart said to me softly
"enjoy your desires: be happy!".
that you enjoy like the fruit of your service
Happy you.

Translation by Andrea Friggi
