Ardo per te, mio bene

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ardo per te, mio bene, ma l'ardore
Spira dolce aura al core.
Moro per te, mia vita, ma il morire
gioia divien, dolcissimo il languire.
Felice sorte, ancor ch'io arda e moia:
L'ardor divien dolce aura, el morir gioia.

Je brûle pour toi, mon amour

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

Je brûle pour toi, mon amour, mais
le feu envoie un doux souffle au cœur.
Je meurs pour toi, ma vie, mais la mort
devient joie, la langueur très douce.
Sort heureux, que je brûle ou que je meure :
Le feu devient un doux souffle, la mort joie.
