Clori gentil, il vostro vago volto
M’ha tolto ogni piacer, ogni diletto;
Deh, se pietà d’altrui vi scald’il petto,
Lasciatemi morire in pace,
Poiche’l morir mio vi piace,
ò fatemi gioire.

German.png German translation

Liebliche Cloris, euer hübsches Gesicht
hat mir alles Vergnügen, alle Freude geraubt;
ach, wenn Zuneigung zu einem anderen euer Herz entzündet,
dann lasst mich in Frieden sterben,
sofern euch mein Tod gefällt,
oder gebt mir den Genuss.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Lovely Cloris, your beautiful face
has robbed me of all pleasure, all delight;
alas, if affection for another inflames your heart,
then let me die in peace,
if my death pleases you,
or grant me enjoyment.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
