Non è di gentil core
chi non arde d’amore;
ma voi che del mio cor l’anima sete
e nel foco d’amor lieta godete,
gentil al par d’ogn’altra havete il core,
perchè ardete d’amore.

He has not a gentle heart
who does not burn for love;
but you, who are the soul of my own heart
and who happily enjoys the fires of love,
in gentleness cannot be exceeded by any other,
as you too burn for love.
