Questi tuoi occhi ardenti
Ch’abruciano le genti
Presto si smorzeranno
E le persone più non arderanno.

Queste d’or chiome erranti
Con che leghi li amanti
Presto s’inbiancheranno
E le persone più non legheranno.

Allor ti guarderai
Nel specchio poi dirai:
Bellezza non rinuova
Così mi penso, ahimè, ma non mi giova.

English.png English translation

These ardent eyes of yours
Which set people ablaze
Will soon die down
And people will no longer be enflamed by them.

These wandering golden locks
that bind lovers to you
will soon go white
And people will no longer be entrapped by them.

Then you'll look
In the mirror then will say:
Beauty does not renew itself
So I think, unfortunately, it is useless to me.

Translation by James Gibb
