Ira in cor di donna amante

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ira in cor di donna amante  
รจ qual nembo in tempo estivo:
assai freme, e dura poco.
A una lagrima, a un sospiro
si dilegua in un istante,
nebbia al sole, e cera al foco.

Translation(s): ENG

Wrath in a loving woman's heart

Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)

Wrath in a loving woman's heart
is like unto a summer storm cloud:
it trembles with great fanfare
and is very short-lasting.

Like the sun disperses fog
and fire melts wax,
a tear, a sigh
cause it to melt away instantly.
