Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Sia vile agli altri, e da quel solo amata
a cui di sé fece sì larga copia.
Ah, Fortuna crudel, Fortuna ingrata!
trionfan gli altri, e ne moro io d’inopia.
Dunque esser può che non mi sia più grata?
dunque io posso lasciar mia vita propia?
Ah, più tosto oggi manchino i dì miei,
ch’io viva più, s’amar non debbo lei!

English.png English translation

And be she cheap with all except the wight
On whom she did so large a boon bestow.
Ah! false and cruel Fortune! foul despite!
While others triumph, I am drown'd in woe.
And can it be that I such treasure slight?
And can I then my very life forego?
No! let me die; 'twere happiness above
A longer life, if I must cease to love.

Translation by William Stewart Rose
