Italian.png Italian text

Tu piangi, o Filli mia,
e pensi estinguer quell'ardente fiamma
che sì dolce m'infiamma.
Ahi, che sì picciol pianto fa che il core
tanto più avvampi di vivace ardore.

English.png English translation

You weep, o Phyllis mine
and think that you might dampen that ardent flame
that so sweetly inflames me.
Alas, such few tears make my heart
blaze even more fiercely with passion.

Translation by Campelli
