Ma te raccoglie, O Ninfa, in grembo 'l cielo.
Io per te miro vedova la terra
deserti i boschi e correr fium'il pianto;
e Driade e Napee del mesto Glauco
ridicono i lamenti, e su la tomba
cantano i pregi dell'amante seno.

English.png English translation

Yet heaven gathers you, o Nymph, to its breast.
Without you is the earth widowed,
the woods are deserted, and tears flow in rivers;
and Dryads and Wood Nymphs echo
the grieving Glaucus’ lament, and over your tomb
sing the praises of his beloved’s heart.
