For each ecstatic instant

Language: English

For each ecstatic instant
We must an anguish pay
In keen and quivering ratio
To the ecstasy.

For each beloved hour
Sharp pittances of years,
Bitter contested farthings
And coffers heaped with tears.

Per ogni attimo d'estasi

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the English

Per ogni attimo d'estasi
ci tocca pagare in angoscia
in intensa e tremante misura
proporzionata all'estasi.
 
Per ogni ora d'amore
taglienti elemosine di anni,
centesimi amaramente contesi
e scrigni di lacrime colmi.
