Io mi son giovanetta e volontieri
M'allegro e canto en la stagion novella,
Merzé d'amore e de' dolci pensieri.
Io vo pe' verdi prati riguardando
I bianchi fiori, e' gialli,
Le rose in su le spine, ei bianchi gigli,
E tutti quanti gli vo somigliando
Al viso di colui ch'amandomi,
ch'amandomi mi presa terrà sempre.

I am a young girl, and I like
To be merry and sing in the new season (spring),
Thanks love and sweet toughts.
I go through the green meadows, looking
At the flowers, white and yellow,
At the roses over the thorns, at the white lilies,
And more and more they look to me like
The face of whom, loving me,
Loving me will catch me and hold me forever.
