Apollo, s'ancor vive il bel desio

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Apollo, s'ancor vive il bel desio
Che t'infiammava a le tesaliche onde,
E se non hai l'amate chiome bionde,
Volgendo gli anni, già poste in oblio;

Dal pigro gielo e dal tempo aspro e rio,
Che dura quanto 'l tuo viso s'asconde,
Difendi or l'onorata e sacra fronde
Ove tu prima e poi fu' invescato io;

E per vertù de l'amorosa speme
Che ti sostenne ne la vita acerba,
Di queste impression l'aere disgombra.

Sì vedrem poi per meraviglia insieme
Seder la donna nostra sopra l'erba
E far de le sue braccia a sè stessa ombra.

Apollo, lebet noch dein hold Verlangen

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

Apollo, lebet noch dein hold Verlangen,
Das an Thessal'scher Flut die blonden Haare
In dir entflammt, und ists im Lauf der Jahre
Nicht unter in Vergessenheit gegangen:

Vor Frost und Nebeln, welche feindlich hangen,
So lang' sich uns dein Antlitz birgt, das klare,
Jetzt dies geehrte heil'ge Laub bewahre,
Wo du zuerst und ich dann ward gefangen.

Und durch die Kraft von dem verliebten Hoffen,
Das in der Jugend dich nicht ließ vergehen,
Laß, von dem Druck [befreyt]1, die Luft erwarmen.

So werden wir, [von]2 Staunen froh getroffen,
Im Grünen uns're Herrin sitzen [sehen]3,
Und sich beschatten mit den eignen Armen.
