Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Due begl'occhi lucente anzi due stelle.
Per pena ch'ebbi ardir mirarli un poco;
Esca m'han fatto d'invisibil fuoco.

English.png English translation

Two beautiful eyes shining or rather, two stars.
At risk of pain I dared to look at them a little;
They have made me a snare of invisible fire.

Translation by James Gibb
