1  Si come crescon alla terra i fiori
Così a voi la bellezza o mio tesoro
E a me'l foco ond'io mi struggo e moro.

2  Si come or cresce agli augelli il canto
Così a voi la virtude o mia speranza
E a me un dolor tal ch'ogn'altro avanza.

3  Si come or crescon anci agli arborscelli
La frondi, così a voi dolce mia vita
Leggiadria ed a me pena infinita.

4  Ma si come tra fronde e fior, e canti
Cangiansi in frutti, così in gran pietade
Cangiate ancor voi donna la beltade.

1  Like the flowers grow on the ground
Alike grows beauty on you, my darling
And alike on me the fire from which I pine away and die.

2  Like now the song of birds grows
Alike in you grows virtue, my hope
And in me such a pain that goes over every other.

4  But alike in the foliage the flowers and songs
Change into fruits, alike into great pity
You change your beauty again, woman.
