Doloroso martire,
Amarilli crudel mi fa languire.
Ah, come al mio dolore
non te si spetra il core
languisco e moro.
Ahi cruda d’amor nemica e di pietate ignuda,
Deh come a l’empia morte al mio dolor
non mi si cangia forte.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Wrede Amaryllis, je verteert mij,
trieste martelaar.
Ah, zoals je bij mijn pijn
mijn hart niet vat,
kwijn ik weg en sterf.
O, vijandig in liefde en van medelijden ontbloot,
Bah, zo’n vreselijke slechtheid
verandert mijn pijn niet sterk.

English.png English translation

Cruel Amaryllis, you consume me,
sad martyr.
Ah, like you at my pain
does not catch my heart,
I languish and die.
O hostile in love and devoid of pity,
Bah, such a terrible wickedness
does not change my pain greatly.
