 Tra verdi rami d'un novello alloro,
 Giva scherzando amore,
 Quando mi punse il core,
 Di sì dolce desire,
 Che mi fa dentro e fuor per lui gioire.
 Questi è disceso dal superno coro,
 Che non teme stagion calda, né verno,
 Onde vivrà in eterno,
 In amoroso zelo,
 Che così impose la natura e 'l cielo.

 Among the green branches of a newborn laurel
Love went laughing
While stinging my heart
with such a sweet desire
That I rejoyce inside and outside because of him.
He came down from the higher chorus,
that does not fearneither summer nor winter
and so he will live eternally
in loving longing,
because Nature and heaven wanted so.
