O Desir di questi occhi
  almo mio sole
  Che si longi da voi
  m'ardet' il petto
  O fin del mio voler
  del mio intelletto
  Dolce soav' angeliche parole.

  O rose eterne
  sparse fra le brine
  Tener' e lievi
  E piu che bella mano,
  O cantar ond' il ciel
  non pur huom goda
  O lume del mio cor,
  soav' e pieno
  O mill' altre bellezze
  alt' e divine,
  Deh sara mai ch'io vi riveggia' et oda.

Oh eyes of my desire,
   my good sun,
   how long before I am with you
   embracing you
   ending my desire,
   my intellect,
   Sweet, sweet words angelic.

   Oh eternal roses
   scattered among the thorns
   To hold your soft
   And most beautyfull hand,
   To sing to the sky
   even though he does not enjoy it
   O light of my heart,
   sweet and full,
   Other beauties
   high and divine,
   I will never turn from you to them.
