D’orrida selce alpina
cred’io Donna nascesti
e da le tigre ircane
il latte havesti,
s’inesorabil sei,
sì dura a’prieghi miei,
o se’ pur tigre anzi pur selce,
ai lasso,
ch’entro un petto di fera
hai cor di sasso.
 

German.png German translation

Eisiger Fels der Alpen
hat dich, Herrin, geboren
und von den Tigern Hyrkaniens
hast du Milch bekommen
so hart bleibst du gegenüber meinem Flehen
Du übertriffst noch Fels und Tiger
Ich Unglücklicher,
dass in der Brust einer Bestie
ein Herz aus Stein ist
 

German.png German translation

Eisiger Fels der Alpen
hat dich, Herrin, geboren,
wardst zu der grausen Tiger
Milchkind erkoren,
wenn du so unerbittlich,
so hart bleibst all meinem Flehen.
Du übertriffst noch Fels und Tiger. Ich weine,
such’ ich Gnade bei Bestien,
du Herz von Steine.
 

French.png French translation

Du sinistre silex des Alpes
Je crois, Madame, que vous êtes née,
Et que de la tigresse d'Hyrcanie
Vous avez eu le lait,
Si dure vous êtes à mes prières
Telle le tigre et le silex,
Hélas,
Que dans votre corps de bête sauvage
Votre cœur
doit être de pierre.
 

English.png English translation

From horrid alpine flint
I believe, Madam, that you were born,
And that from the Hyrcanian tigress
You had your milk;
You are so hard on my supplications
Like a tiger or like flint,
Alas, in the body of a wild beast
Your heart must be of stone.

Translation by James Gibb
