Angelica biltà venut’è in terra:
Dunque ciascun c’ama veder belleçça
Virtù atti veçosi e legiadria.
Vengha veder costei che sol vagheça,
Arà di lei si com’à l’alma mia
Ma non credo con pace tanta guerra.
Angelica biltà venut’è in terra.

Angelic beauty has arrived on earth.
Therefore, anyone who loves to look upon
Beauty, virtue, charming and graceful gestures,
Should come to see her, for he will have from her
Only loveliness, just as my own soul has.
But I do not believe warfare will bring peace.
Angelic beauty has arrived on earth.
