Assetato d'amor, Tirsi infelice
Chiedea languendo al core
Refrigerio di lacrime e di pianto
Versò dall'alma intanto,
O pietà grande, amaro sangue fuore;
Ma non però l'ardore
In lui punto s'estinse: onde'l vedrete
Cadavero infelice, arso di sete.

English.png English translation

Longing for love, unhappy Thyrsis,
Weary at heart, sought
Relief from tears and weeping;
He shed from his soul, in the meantime-
O great sorrow- bitter blood;
But his passion, however,
Was not quenched at all: so you see him
A wretched corpse, consumed by desire.
