La luna s'è venuta a lamentare

Language: Italian (Italiano)

La luna s'è venuta a lamentare
Inde la faccia del divino Amore:
Dice che in cielo non ci vuol piú stare;
Ché tolto gliel'avete lo splendore.

E si lamenta, e si lamenta forte.
L'ha conto le sue stelle, non son tutte.
E gliene manca due, e voi l'avete:
Son que' du' occhi che in fronte tenete.

Der Mond hat eine schwere Klag' erhoben

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Der Mond hat eine schwere Klag' erhoben
Und vor dem Herrn die Sache kund gemacht;
Er wolle nicht mehr stehn am Himmel droben,
Du habest ihn um seinen Glanz gebracht.

Als er zuletzt das Sternenheer gezählt,
Da hab es an der vollen Zahl gefehlt; 
Zwei von den schönsten habest du entwendet:
Die beiden Augen dort, die mich verblendet.
