Canzon, se l'esser meco
dal matino a la sera
t'à fatto di mia schiera,
tu non vorrai mostrarti in ciascun loco;
et d'altrui loda curerai sí poco,
ch'assai ti fia pensar di poggio in poggio
come m'à concio il foco
di questa viva petra, ov'io m'appoggio.

Canzoniere 50 (last part)

German.png German translation

Kanzone, die von frühe
bis spät du bei mir weiltest
und meine Schmerzen teiltest:
Zu zeigen dich der Welt wirst du nicht wagen,
und kannst dem Lob der Hörer gern entsagen;
dir ziemt, von Berg zu Berge still zu wallen,
voll Schmerz, dass unsre Klagen
an ihren Felsenherzen leer verhallen.

English.png English translation

Song, if being with me
from dawn to evening
has made you of my company,
you’ll not wish to show yourself everywhere:
and you’ll care so little for other’s praise,
it’s enough for you to take thought, from hill to hill,
of how I’m scorched by fire
from this living stone, on which I lean.
