Se voi lagrime a pieno
Non mostrate il dolore
Ch'entro rinchiud'il seno,
A che versate fore?
Statevi dentro e soffocate il core.

Leonora Bernardi, Drama, Poetry and Music in late-Renaissance Italy (2023), p.415

English.png English translation

If you, tears,
do not fully express the anguish
my breast harbours within,
then why do you pour out?
Stay within and choke my heart.

Translation Virginia Cox
