Da quei begl’ occhi ove s’accese il foco
Che m’ard’ a poco a poco
Vidi lagrime uscir, ond’ io pensai
Ch’amorzasse la fiamma il novo umore,
E mi sentì nel core
Fiamma ch’estinguer non potrò più mai.

From those fair eyes wherein was kindled
The fire that consumes me little by little
I saw tears come forth, whereupon I thought
That this new draught would dampen the flame,
And in my heart I felt a flame
That ne’er again will I be able to extinguish.
