Il vostro dipartir, donna, mi diede noiosa vita
E con si dubbia spene di voi, caro mio bene
Ch’alti si n’pera di ciò fia cagione
Le vostr’alme virtut’ al mondo sole
E rio timor mi spinge ond’ i miei lumi
Sembran d’amare lacrime duo fiumi.

French.png French translation

Votre départ, madame, rend ma vie ennuyeuse
Et avec une espérance de vous si incertaine, mon très cher bien,
Je n'espère rien d'autre de raisonnable
Que votre âme, seule vertu au monde.
Et une peur mauvaise humidifie mes yeux
Qui semblent deux fleuves de larmes amères.

English.png English translation

My lady, your leaving has given me
a wretched life, so uncertain in hope:
afraid, my very dear heart,
that you, with your generous qualities,
are alone in the world,
and cruel fear oppresses me so much that my eyes
look like two fountains of bitter tears.

Translation by Nicholas Jones
