Non è dolor ch'avanzi la mia doglia,
E par che mia fortuna così voglia.
Son disperato, e pur mi segue amore,
Per consumarmi con maggior dolore.

There is no sorrow that exceeds my sorrow,
and it seems that my fortune wants it so.
I am desperate, and yet love pursues me,
to burn me with greater pain.
(Tr. Ruth I. DeFord)
