Italian.png Italian text

Di marmo siete voi,
donna, a colpi d'amore,
al pianto mio,
e di marmo son io
alle vostr'ire e agli strali suoi
per natura,
per amor io costante
e voi dura.
Ambo siam sassi
e l'un e l'altro è scoglio,
io di fé e voi d'orgoglio.
 

English.png English translation

You are like marble,
Lady, resisting the blows of love,
and my weeping,
And I too am like marble
Against your wrath and arrows.
From nature
And out of love I am firm,
And you are hard.
We are both stone,
Both like rocks,
I out of loyalty and you from pride.

Translation by James Gibb

German.png German translation

Aus Marmor seid Ihr,
Dame, gegen das Pochen der Liebe,

und aus Marmor bin ich
gegen Euren Zorn und seine Pfeile.
Von Natur
Und aus Liebe bin ich standhaft,
und ihr seid hart.
Wir beide sind Stein,
und einer wie der andere ist ein Fels,
Ich aus Treue und Ihr aus Stolz.

Translation by Peter Rottländer
