Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

O terra, tu che puoi, terra, contentami,
tranghiotti il tristo corpo in le tue viscere,
si che uom mai non ne trove orma, né sentami.
O folgori che fate il ciel tremiscere,
venite a quel che ad alta voce chiamavi,
e vuol, se può, di disamare addiscere.

English.png English translation

O thou who art able, Earth, content me, Earth,
swallow up in thy bowels my sad body,
so no man may see me, or find trace of me.
O thunders that make heaven tremble,
come to him who cries at high voice
and wants, if he can, stop loving.
