Poi che vuole il ben mio,
Che lontana da lui languisca e pianga,
Pianger lassa e languir sempre desio,
Sperando che rimanga,
Vinto al fin dal mio pianto e dal dolore,
Il suo superbo core.

English.png English translation

Because my beloved wishes
that I languish and weep far from him,
let me cry and languish, always longing,
hoping that it remains,
defeated in the end by my tears and pain:
his proud heart.

Translation by Allen Garvin
