Questi vaghi concenti

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Questi vaghi concenti
che l'augellett'intorno
vanno temprando a l'apparir del giorno
sono, cred'io, d'amor desiri ardenti;
sono pene e tormenti;
e pur fanno le selv'e'l ciel gioire
al lor dolce languire.
Deh! se potessi anch'io
cosí dolce dolermi
per questi poggi solitari e ermi,
che quell'a cui piacer sola desio
gradiss'il pianger mio,
io bramerei sol per piacer a lei
eterni i pianti miei.

Estas placenteras armonías

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

Estas placenteras armonías
que a mi alrededor los pájaros
van templando al despuntar el día
son, creo yo, deseos ardientes de amor;
son penas y tormentos;
y no obstante regocijan a las selvas y los cielos
con su dulce endecha.
¡Ah! Si pudiese también yo
tan dulcemente lamentarme
por estas colinas solitarias y serenas, 
de tal modo que a aquella, cuyo placer sólo deseo,
le agradase mi llanto,
yo ansiaría, sólo por su deleite,
que fueran eternos los llantos míos.
