Tal’hor sano desio
Vuol che morendo ancida ogni mia doglia;
Ma io di pianger vago, ho fiera voglia,
Amo la vita solo
Perchè il mio pianto eterno duolo.

English.png English translation

From time to time a healthy desire
would wish for death to murder all my woe;
But I wish to weep, a great desire have I,
I love life only
since tears sustain my eternal sorrow.
