Italian.png Italian text

Dunque da voi convien ch'io m'allontane,
o dell'anima mia parte più cara,
per commetter la vita a l'onde insane?

O di, che mal per me Febo rischiara,
e qual sarà giungendo la partita,
s'aspettandola solo ella è sì amara?

English.png English translation

Thus is it necessary that from you I go for away,
O, dearest part of my soul,
and entrust my life to the raging waves?

Oh tell, Phoebus, what ill fortune for me becomes clear,
and what shall come of this separation,
if by mere anticipation alone it is so bitter?

Translation by Allen Garvin
