O Desir di questi occhi
 almo mio sole
 Che si longi da voi
 m'ardet' il petto
 O fin del mio voler
 del mio intelletto
 Dolce soav' angeliche parole.

 O rose eterne
 sparse fra le brine
 Tener' e lievi
 E piu che bella mano,
 O cantar ond' il ciel
 non pur huom goda
 O lume del mio cor,
 soav' e pieno
 O mill' altre bellezze
 alt' e divine,
 Deh sara mai ch'io vi riveggia' et oda.

Oh eyes of my desire,
 my good sun,
 how long before I am with you
 embracing you
 ending my desire,
 my intellect,
 Sweet, sweet words angelic.

 Oh eternal roses
 scattered among the thorns
 To hold your soft
 And most beautyfull hand,
 To sing to the sky
 even though he does not enjoy it
 O light of my heart,
 sweet and full,
 Other beauties
 high and divine,
 I will never turn from you to them.
