Amor l'ali m'impenna
Language: Italian (Italiano)
Amor l'ali m'impenna,
[Amor caro, amor dolce]1, amor felice,
Tal [ch'i'non]2 spero più nè più mi lice.
Passò monti e procelle,
Passò [il cielo]3 e le stelle...
Del piacer [questo è il]4 regno!
Ah mia fortuna non se l'abbia a sdegno!
Questo, questo m'accora,
Ch'altri cadèo dal paradiso ancora!

Love gives me wings
Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)
Love gives me wings,
dearest, sweetest, happiest love,
such that I dare not hope to enjoy,
nor which is permitted to me anymore.
It has triumphed over mountains, storms,
the heavens, and the stars...
This is the kingdom of pleasure!
May my fortune not be held in scorn!
May it hasten to me,
and let others fall once more from paradise!
