Original text and translations
Youth of the gloomy brow! No more shalt thou feast in my halls!
Thou shalt not pursue my chase, my foes shall not fall by thy sword.
Raise the praise of the daughter of Sarno! Give her name
to the winds of heav'n.
See, meteors gleam around the maid; see, moonbeams lift her soul.
