Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Io son ferito, ahi lasso!
e chi mi diede accusar pur vorrei, ma non ho prova;
e senz' idizio al mal non si da fede:
ne getta sangue la mia piaga nuova.
Io spasm' e moro; il colpo non si vede.

La mia nemica armata si ritrova.
Che fia tornar a lei crudel partito,
che sol m'abbia a sanar chi m'ha ferito.

A variant of the poem used in Io son ferito ay lasso (Jean de Castro) and Io son ferito hai lasso (Giovanni Francesco Capuano), and quite different from Io son ferito (Luca Marenzio).
