Sonetto XXXII

Language: Italian (Italiano)

S'un casto amor, s'una pietà superna,
S'una fortuna infra dua amanti equale,
S'un'aspra sorte all'un dell'altro cale,
S'un spirto, s'un voler duo cor governa;
S'un'anima in duo corpi è fatta etterna,
Ambo levando al cielo e con pari ale;
S'amor c'un colpo e d'un dorato strale
Le viscer di duo petti arda e discerna;
S'amar l'un l'altro, e nessun se medesmo,
D'un gusto e d'un diletto, a tal mercede,
C'a un fin voglia l'uno e l'altro porre;
Se mille e mille non sarien centesmo
A tal nodo d'amore, a tanta fede;
E sol l'isdegno il può rompere e sciorre.

Sonnet XXXII

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Si un chaste amour, une pitié céleste,
Si une fortune égale entre deux amants,
Si un sort amer sont partagés par les deux,
Si un seul esprit et une volonté gouvernent deux cœurs,
Si une âme dans deux corps est rendue éternelle,
Élevant les deux jusqu'au ciel sur les mêmes ailes,
Si l'amour d'un coup et d'une flèche dorée
Embrase et perce deux cœurs jusqu'au tréfonds,
Si chacun aime l'autre plus que lui-même,
Avec un plaisir et un délice, en récompense,
Qu'à la même fin tous les deux aspirent ;
Si des milliers et des milliers ne font pas un centième
D'un tel lien d'amour, d'une telle constance,
Alors la colère les brisera et les dissoudra ?
