Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Resta di darmi noia,
pensier crudo e fallace,
ch'esser non può già mai quel che a te piace!
Morta è per me la gioia,
onde sperar non lice
d'esser mai più felice.

English.png English translation

Cease giving me trouble,
cruel and deceitful thought.
for what you desire can never be.
Joy is dead to me,
therefore I'm allowed no hope
of ever being happy again.

Translation by Campelli
