I bei ligustri e rose
ch'in voi natura pose
Dona gentil mi fan' ogn'hor morire
si grave'e la mia pena e'l mio martire.

English.png English translation

Sweet roses within hedges
Inset by Nature in you,
Noble Lady, causes each hour my death:
So great the pain I am virtually a martyr.

 Translation from Musical Times, Autumn 2004 by Altschuler, Eric Lewin, Jansen, William
