 +
:Infinita bellezza et poca fede,

:non vedete voi 'l cor nelli occhi mei?

:Se non fusse mia stella, i' pur devrei

:Quest'arder mio, di che vi cal sí poco,

 +
:fredda una lingua et duo belli occhi chiusi

Lasso, ch'i' ardo, et altri non me 'l crede;
sí crede ogni uom, se non sola colei
che sovr'ogni altra, et ch'i' sola, vorrei:
ella non par che 'l creda, et sí sel vede.
Infinita bellezza et poca fede,
non vedete voi 'l cor nelli occhi mei?
Se non fusse mia stella, i' pur devrei
al fonte di pietà trovar mercede.
Quest'arder mio, di che vi cal sí poco,
e i vostri honori, in mie rime diffusi,
ne porian infiammar fors'anchor mille:
ch'i' veggio nel penser, dolce mio foco,
fredda una lingua et duo belli occhi chiusi
rimaner, dopo noi, pien' di faville.
Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374), Canzoniere 203

Alas, I burn, and others will not believe me:
if all believed she who's above all others
still does not, she who alone I wish to do so:
she does not seem to believe, and yet she sees.
Infinite beauty, yet of such little faith,
do you not see my heart in my eyes?
If my fate were not otherwise, I surely must
find mercy at the fountain of pity?
My passion, for which you care so little,
and your praises that pervade my verses,
may yet perhaps set thousands on fire:
since, my sweet flame, in my thoughts, I see,
long after us, this tongue, grown cold, yet your
two lovely closed eyes, there, glowing still.
(A. S. Kline)

Weh, daß ich glüh, und eine nicht will trauen!
Es traut mir alle Welt, nur nicht die eine;
Sie, hoch vor allen, die erwählte meine,
Sie, scheint es, traut mir nicht, und kann’s doch schauen.
Endlose Schönheit und gering Vertrauen,
Seht ihr mein Herz nicht in der Augen Scheine?
Wär’s nicht mein Stern, so sollte doch, ich meine,
Vom Born des Mitleids mir Erbarmen tauen.
Dies mein Erglühn, das euch so wenig teuer,
Und euer Ruhm, durch meine Vers’ ergossen,
Könnten noch Tausende vielleicht entzünden;
Im Geiste seh ich schon, mein süßes Feuer,
Wie eine kalte Zung und, fest verschlossen,
Ein Augenpaar nach uns viel Glut entbinden.
(Karl Förster)
