Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Occhi, piangete, accompagnat’il core
Che di vostro fallir morte sostiene
Così sempre facciamo et ne conviene
Lamentar più l’altrui ch’el nostr’errore.

Canzoniere 84 (1st 4 lines)
English.png English translation

Weep, eyes: accompany the heart
that is about to die for your failings.
'So we are, always weeping: we must mourn
for another's fault rather than our own.'
