Tu, che del mio dolor selvaggia fera
del bel viso divino
e pasciti'l mattino
e pasciti la sera,
di che vivrai se gl'avvien pur ch'io pera?

Che grave mi par solo
non per uscir di vita ma di duolo.
Hor morend'io non sai
che more ancho'l mio duol
di che vivrai?

Thou, wild beast
with a beautiful face
that enjoy my woes
by day and by night,
what would you do if I die?

It's heavy for me
not to end my life but to end my sorrows.
Now that I die, don't you know
that also my dolour, from which you feed yourself,
shall end?

Thanks to Andrea Friggi for the English translation.
