Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Pian piano, aure tranquille --
non destate costei.
Dormono i dolor miei;
deh, fermatevi! o venti:
dormono i miei tormenti.
Ma destatela pur, che mai non posa
beltà crudel che m’è nel petto ascosa.

English.png English translation

Hush, hush, quiet winds --
do not wake her up.
My sorrows sleep;
ah, stop!, winds:
my torments rest.
In fact, wake her!, for is never asleep
the cruel beauty concealed in my bosom.

Translation by Campelli
