Le tue guancie vezzose,
Amor di bianch'e di vermiglie rose
con si bel minio in fiora,
che sembri Emilia la nascente Aurora.

English.png English translation

Love paints her lovely cheeks
with white and red. . .
with such blossoming pigments
that Emilia glows like the dawn.

Translation by Nicholas Jones
