Italian.png Italian text

Se tra verdi arbuscelli
O lung'à fresca riva
Di limpidi ruscelli
Vienmi a ferir nel viso
L'aura di Paradiso
Amor sovvienm'il giorno
Che spirò la dolcissima mia Diva
L'aura al mio cor intorno
Per cui se tutto avvampo
E l'aura e il foco
Mi fia gradito in ogni tempo e loco.

English.png English translation

If amongst green trees
Or along the fresh shore
Of clear brooks
Comes to wound my face
A breath from Paradise,
My love, I remember the day
When my sweet Goddess
Blew her aura around my heart,
For which I am all in flames,
So that this aura and this fire
Are welcome any place and any time.
