Se nasce in Cielo
il dio di Delo,
a l'occidente
guinge repente.
Se si fa notte
segue l'Aurora,
e 'l ciel indora.

Brieve baleno
dura al sereno,
ogni tempesta
al fin s'arresta.
Verdeggia il ramo
e poi si spoglia
d'ogni sua foglia.

Nasce vicina
al fior la spina,
seguita il pianto
al riso accanto.
Solo l'Amore,
estate e verno
dura in eterno.

Amor ci affligge
e ci traffigge,
se nasce indarno
se mort' il giorno.
In ogni tempo,
Amor ci segue
e ci persegue.

English.png English translation

As soon as he rises
in the sky,
Apollo hastens
to the west.
Hard on night's heels
comes the dawn,
gilding the sky.

Lightning lasts
but briefly in clear skies,
every storm
comes to an end.
Boughs put forth greenery,
then shed
every leaf.

Close to the flower
the thorn appears,
tears soon follow
Only Love,
come winter, come summer,
lasts forever.

Love afflicts itself
and transfixes itself,
everytime a day
is born and dead in vain.
At all times,
Love follows it,
and runs after it.
