Original text and translations

Piango che Amor con disusato oltraggio
Di nuova fiamma il cor m'incende e rode.
Sospiro che un fiorito e verde Maggio
Più sfortunato amante oggi non gode.
Dogliomi sol che un chiaro e vivo raggio
Di due begli occhi lagrimar non m'ode.
Che fin forse darian pietosi alquanto,
Al lamento, ai sospiri, al duro pianto.

English.png English translation

I cry, because Love, with unused outrage
Of a new flame my heart burns and consumes.
I sigh, because a green and flourished May
The most unlucky lover now doesn't enjoy.
I pain because a clear and lively ray
From two beautiful eyes doesn't hear* my tears.
Maybe, pitiful, they will give an end
To sorrow, to sighs and bitter crying.

Wee mij, de Liefde heeft in wraakvol streven
opnieuw in ‘t oude hart haar vuur ontstoken.
Ik huiver, ik huiver: waar de Mei het groen doet leven,
is aan mijn dorre boezem treurnis ontloken,
bloesem van smart om twee volmaakte ogen,
onwetend van het kwaad dat zij verrichten.
O, mochten zij opeens, vol mededogen
voor mijn klagen, mijn ellend(e) en pijn verlichten.

Spanish.png Spanish translation

Lloro amor con indignación desacostumbrada.
Con nueva llama el corazón se me enciende y consume.
Suspiro porque un florido y verde Mayo,
el más desafortunado amante hoy no goce.
Peno porque el rayo claro y vívido
de dos bellos ojos, no me oiga llorar.
Qué fin, quizá piadoso, darán
al lamento, al suspiro y al amargo llanto.
