Original text and translations

English.png English text

April is in my mistress' face,
And July in her eyes hath place;
Within her bosom is September,
But in her heart a cold December.

German.png German translation

April ist im Antlitz meiner Gebieterin,
Und Juli steht in ihren Augen.
In ihrem Busen trägt sie den September,
Aber im Herzen einen kalten Dezember.

Translation by Peter Rottländer

Italian.png Italian translation

Aprile è nel viso della mia amata,
E Luglio trova spazio nei suoi occhi;
Nel suo petto è Settembre,
Ma nel suo cuore un freddo Dicembre.
