Original text and translations

English.png English text

Gush forth, my tears,
and stay the burning either
of my poor heart, or her eyes:
choose you whether.
O most peevish fond desire!
For out allas!
my sighs still blow the fire.

French.png French text

Déversez-vous, mes larmes
Pour calmer la brûlure,
Soit de mon pauvre coeur,
Soit de ses yeux : à vous de choisir.
O doux désir si obstiné!
Car hélas! mes soupirs
Soufflent aussi le feu.
