Lascia Filli, mia cara spoglia quel tuo rigore
E saggia come sei, vesti d’Amore:
Guarda non imitare le serpe
Colombi impara amare
Da loro i modi impara
Come bacian gli amanti
Con iterati amplessi e vezzi tanti
Che se t’ho’n braccio un giorno
Vuò ch’à mille colombi facciam scorno.

Leave off, Phyllis, my dear, shed your harshness
and find out how you are when clothed in love
See that you don't imitate the snakes
Learn from the doves how to love
From them learn the ways
How lovers kiss
With hug after hug and so many caresses
That, if I have you in my arms one day,
I want us to put a thousand doves to shame.
