Nasce la doglia mia
dal vedermi levar il mio bel sole
da fortuna empia ria
e tormi i dolci rai.
Dov'io sempre sperai
gioia e diletto;
e per maggior dolore
ogni lieta speranza ha volta in duolo.
Ahi falso e crud'amore!
Dimmi che fia di lui che di me veggio
ch'amand'ho male, e non amand'ho peggio.

English.png English translation

My pain is born
from seeing my beautiful sun rise:
by cruel, wicked fortune
and its sweet rays are ripped from me,
Where I always hoped
for joy and delight;
instead through the greatest sorrow
every happy hope has turned to grief.
Oh false and cruel love!
Tell me what will come of him whom I desire,
for in loving I have suffered, and yet not loving I suffer worse.

Translation by Allen Garvin
