Deh, lascia, Filli, i fiori,
che cogli per Damon,
tuo infid’ amante,
Che sotto à queste piante
Con Dafne ride de tuoi folli ardori;
ed io, che sol t’adoro,
vedrai, disse Fillen,
ch’io per te moro.

German.png German translation

Ach, lass, Phyllis, die Blumen,
die du für Damon pflückst,
deinen untreuen Geliebten,
der unter diesen Pflanzen
mit Dafne über deine verrückte Leidenschaft lacht;
und ich, der nur dich anbetet,
du wirst sehen, sprach Filleno,
dass ich für dich sterbe.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Oh, let be, Phyllis, the flowers
that you gather for Damon,
your unfaithful lover,
who below these plants
 with Dafne laughs about your foolish passion;
and I, who only adores you,
you will see, spake Filleno,
that I die for you.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
