Altra aurora bisogna, altro oriente,
agli occhi miei per cui senza voi sono,
il Ciel oscuro e le sue luci spente.

Misero, che pensando a quel ch'io sono,
ed a quel ch'io sarò, preso il viaggio,
quasi m'offende del bel guardo il dono.

English.png English translation

Another dawn is needed, a different Orient
for my eyes, for without you
the Heavens are dark, and its lights extinguished.

Wretched me, thinking of that which I am,
and to that which I shall be, my journey begun
already half offended by the gift of your beautiful gaze.

Translation by Allen Garvin
