Original text and translations
Farewell all joys, O Hell,
Now restless care’s my pillow.
Sweet myrtle shades, farewell,
Now come, sad cypress, and forlorn Love’s willow.
She smiles, she laughs, she joys at my tormenting,
Break then, poor heart. Tossed on despair’s black billow,
O let me die lamenting.
