Eccomi pronta ai baci:
baciami, Ergasto mio; ma bacia in guisa
che dei denti mordaci
nota non resti nel mio volto incisa,
perch’altri non m’additi, e in essa poi
legga le mie vergogne e i baci tuoi.
Ahi, tu mordi e non baci,
tu mi segnasti, ahi, ahi!
Possa io morir se più ti bacio mai!

English.png English translation

Here I am, ready for kisses:
kiss me, my Ergasto; but kiss
in such a way that no trace of biting teeth
may leave a scar to mark my face;
so that others may not point to it and in it
read my shame and your kisses.
Ah! You bite and do not kiss,
you have branded me, ah! Ah!
Better to die than kiss you no more!

Czech.png Czech translation

Jsem zde a má ústa žádostivá,
a ty mne polib hned, Ergasto má,
Ale polib mne tak, aby znaménko jediné
jako stopa tvých zubů nezůstalo v tváři mé.
Aby mne nikdo nemohl odhalit
a mou hanbu a tvé polibení doložit.
Au! ty koušeš a nelíbáš
ty mne znamenáš, ach, ááách!
Umřel bych raději,než žil bez tvého políbení!
