Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Se'l venir fù partita che mi tolse la vita,
perche col fuggir via con voi non mi rapisti
acciò contraria sia di Ganimede la perdita mia.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Als komen het heengaan was dat mij het leven kostte,
omdat je me niet ontvoert als ik met jou weg loop;
zo is mijn verlies anders dan van Ganymedes.

English.png English translation

If coming was going that took my life,
because you don't kidnap me when I run away with you;
so my loss is different from Ganymede's.
