Lasciatemi mirar, donna, il bel viso
E non me lo vogliate a me celare
Che il tempo il può cangiare.

Mirate i vaghi fior di primavera
Come nel nascer son tanto graditi
E in breve son smarriti.

Voi donna siete un fior di primavera
permettereste mai che si scolori
senza ch'alcun l'odori?

English.png English translation

Let me behold, oh lady, the beautiful face
And don't hide it to me
As time may change it.

Look at the spring flowers
How they are loved when they appear
And how in short they are lost.

You lady are a spring flower
Would you ever let it discolour
Before someone could smell it?
