Ch'io mai vi possa 
Lasciar d'amare,
[No, nol]1 credete, 
Pupille care;
Nè men per gioco 
V'ingannerò.

Voi foste e siete 
Le mie faville,
E voi sarete, 
Care pupille,
Il mio bel foco 
Sin ch'io vivrò.

O placido il mare
Lusinghi la sponda,
O porti con l'onda
Terrore e spavento:
È colpa del vento,
Sua colpa non è.

S'io vo' con la sorte
cangiando sembianza,
virtù l'incostanza
diventa per me.

  • ENG English (Andrew Schneider) , "Have you ever seen the summer rain", copyright © 2018, (re)printed on this website with kind permission


Vedeste mai sul prato
cader la pioggia estiva?
Talor la rosa avviva
a la viola appresso;
figlio del prato istesso
è l’uno e l’altro fiore
ed è l’istesso umore
che germogliar gli fa.
 
Il cor non è cangiato
se accusa o se difende.
Una cagion m’accende
di sdegno e di pietà.
