Original text and translations

Io son si vago de li miei sospiri,
E si contento sono della mia sorte,
Donna, in cui sola son i miei desiri,
Ch’altro me n’aspetto che la morte,
Che per dolcezza venga e vad’ e poi rivenga,
Tal che più vago e più contento sia
De miei sospiri e de la sorte mia.

German.png German translation

Ich bin so begierig nach meinen Seufzern,
und so zufrieden bin ich mit meinem Schicksal,
Herrin, in der allein all mein Sehnen liegt,
dass ich nichts anderes als den Tod erwarte,
der durch Zärtlichkeit kommen möge, und gehen und wiederkommen,
so dass ich noch begieriger und zufriedener sein möge
mit meinen Seufzern und meinem Schicksal.
 

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

I am so desirous of my sighs,
and so content am I with my fate,
lady, in whom alone are my desires,
that I await nothing but death,
which by sweetness shall come and go and then come again,
such that still more desirous and more content I will be
with my sighs and with my fate.
 

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Je suis si désireux de mes soupirs,
et je suis si content de mon destin,
ma dame, qui contiennes mes désirs,
que je n’expecte autre que la mort,
que par douceur vienne e s’en aille e revienne,
tant que plus désireux et plus content sois
de mes soupirs et de mon destin.
