Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Questi leggiadri odorosetti fiori,
Fur già Ninfe e Pastori,
Et hor de miei pensieri,
Son muti messaggieri.
Deh, mentre voi pietosa,
Volgete gl'occhi à la lor sorte ria,
Pietà vi mova de la doglia mia.

English.png English translation

These graceful fragrant flowers
were once nymphs and shepherds,
and now are mute envoys
of my thoughts.
Ah! May you, full of compassion,
when you turn your eyes to their hard fate,
be [also] moved by pity for my pain.

Translation by Campelli
