Darà la notte il sol lume alla terra
splenderà Cintia il di, prima che Glauco
di baciar, d'honorar lasci quel seno
che fu nido d'Amor, che dura tomba preme.
Nel sol d'alti sospir, di pianto,
prodighe a lui saran le fere e 'l Cielo.

By the night the sun will light up the earth,
the moon will shine by day, ere Glaucus
cease kissing and honouring that breast
wherein Love nested, and which now lies
crushed in a sad grave. The beasts and heaven
will greatly pity his sighs and tears.
