Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Ecco, morirò dunque!
Nè fia che pur rimire
Tu ch’ancidi mirando
Il mio morire.

Ahi, già mi discoloro,
Oimè vien meno
La luce a gli occhi miei,
La voce, al seno!

O che morte gradita
Se almen potessi dir:
"Moro, mia vita!"

English.png English translation

So, then die I will!
Do not then look,
you whose eyes kill,
how I die.

Ah, I lose color,
Oh! there is less
light coming to my eyes,
the voice, the breast!

Oh, death would be welcome
if only I could say:
'I die, my life!'
