Ecco, Silvio, colei che 'n odio hai...

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ecco, Silvio, colei che 'n odio hai tanto,
eccola in quella guisa
che la volevi a punto.
Bramastila ferir: ferita l'hai;
bramastila tua preda: eccola preda;
bramastila alfin morta: eccola a morte.
Che vuoi tu piú da lei? che ti può dare
piú di questo Dorinda? Ah garzon crudo!
Ah cor senza pietà! Tu non credesti
la piaga che per te mi fece Amore:
puoi questa or tu negar de la tua mano?
Non hai creduto il sangue
ch'i' versava dagli occhi:
crederai questo, che 'l mio fianco versa?

He aquí, Silvio, a la que odias tanto

Language: Spanish (Español) after the Italian (Italiano)

He aquí, Silvio, a la que odias tanto,
hela de la manera
como querías verla.
La quisiste herir: herida la tienes;
la quisiste tu presa: hela aquí presa;
la quisiste al fin muerta: hela a punto de morir.
¿Qué más quieres tú de ella? ¿Qué otra cosa 
más que esto puede darte Dorinda? ¡Ah, joven cruel!
¡Ah, corazón impío!  Tú no creíste 
en la llaga que por ti me hizo Amor:
¿Puedes negar ahora la herida que tu mano me hiciera?
No has creído en la sangre 
que brotaba de mis ojos:
¿creerás en la sangre que mana de mi flanco?
