English original text

Lo, shee flyes when I woe her,
Nor can I get Nor can I get unto her,
But why do I complaine mee,
Say, if I dye, she hath unkindly slaine mee.

English.png English text

Lo, she flies when I woo her,
Nor can I get unto her.
But why do I complain me,
Say, if I die, she hath unkindly slain me.

Italian.png Italian translation

Ecco, lei fugge quando la corteggio,
Né posso raggiungerla.
Ma perché mi lamento,
Dite, se muoio, che lei mi ha crudelmente ucciso!
