Pose un gran foco nel mio petto Amore.
Che m'arse un tempo il cor con viva forza;
Ma sdegno giusto ogni gran foco ammorza.
Fu l'ardor grave ch'ogni dì cresceva,
Or non mi scalda più, non mi rinforza;
Che sdegno giusto ogni gran foco ammorza.

Love set a great fire in my heart
That once my heart with living strength burned
But a righteous disdain can extinguish every fire
It was a strong fire, growing every day,
Now it warms me no more, it doesn't strengthen me
Because a righteous disdain can extinguish every fire
