Original text and translations

Non sono in queste rive
fiori così vermigli
come le labbra de la donna mia,
né 'l suon de l'aure estive
tra fonti e rose e gigli
fa del suo canto più dolce armonia.
Canto che m'ardi e piaci,
t'interrompano solo i nostri baci!

English.png English translation

There are upon these shores
no flowers as red
as my mistress’ lips,
nor does the sound of summer winds
amidst fountains, roses, and lilies
produce sweeter harmonies than her singing.
Song that inflames and pleases me,
may our kisses alone interrupt you.

Translation by Campelli
French.png French translation

Il n’y a sur ces rives
de fleurs aussi vermeilles
que les lèvres de mon amoureuse.
Ni le son de vents d'été
entre fontaines, roses et lis
produit harmonie plus douce que son chant.
Chant, tu qui m’avives et me plais,
rien ne t’interrompt, sauf nos baisers.

Translation by Campelli
