Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Che fai, Dori, che pensi?
Avrò mai pace,
Pace e letizia avrai.
Deh! Dimmi l’hora
Quando vedrai dal ciel
scender l’aurora.

Che fai, Dori, che parli?
Avrò mai tregua?
Tregua e conforto avrai.
Deh! Dimmi il punto
Quando Febo da noi
sarà disgiunto.

Fugga dunque la luce, e’l biond’Apollo
Tosto i bei raggi asconda, e vien tu sera
Vientene via volando anzi ch’io pera.

English.png English translation

What are you doing, Doris, what are you thinking?
Shall I never know peace?
You shall have peace - and joy.
Alas, when shall that be?
When you see Dawn descend from the sky.

What are you doing, Doris, what are you saying?
Shall I never have any respite?
You shall have respite - and comfort.
Alas, when shall that be?
When Phoebus
departs from us.

Then let the light be gone, and golden-haired Apollo:
hide soon the resplendent rays, and come, evening,
come, fly away before I perish.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
