O mistress mine ! Where are you roaming?
O! stay and hear; your true love’s coming
That can sing both high and low.
Trip no further, pretty sweeting;
Journeys end in lovers’ meeting.
Every wise man’s son doth know.

Quant’è bella la giovinezza
che si fugge tutta via!
Chi vuol esser lieto, sia:
del doman non v’ècertezza.

Questo è Bacco e Arianna belli
e l’un de l’altro ardenti:
perché ‘l tempofugge e inganna
sempre insieme stan contenti.

Queste ninfe ed altre genti
sono allegre tutta via.
Chi vuol esser lieto, sia:
del doman non v’ècertezza.

What is love? ’tis not hereafter;
Present mirth hath present laughter;
What’s to come is still unsure:
in delay there lies no plenty,
Then come kiss me, sweet-and-twenty,
Youth’s a staff will not endure.
