Italian.png Italian text

Clori a Damon dicea: dolce ben mio,
Fia mai ch'un tant' amor vada in oblio?
Et ei: Nò, ch'el tuo nodo è in me sì forte,
Che non si sciorra mai se non per morte.
Così detto stringea l'un l'altro tanto,
Che non più stringe ò l'edera ò l'acanto.

German.png German translation

Cloris sprach zu Damon: Mein süßer Liebster,
Wird es je geschehen, dass eine solche Liebe in Vergessenheit gerät?
Und er: Nein, weil dein Knoten in mir so fest ist,
dass er sich niemals lösen wird, außer durch den Tod.
Als sie das gesagt hatten, umarmten sie einander derart,
wie selbst Efeu oder Akanthus es nicht stärker tun.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
