Ecco, Silvio, colei che 'n odio hai tanto

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ecco, Silvio, colei che 'n odio hai tanto,
eccola in quella guisa
che la volevi a punto.
Bramastila ferir: ferita l'hai;
bramastila tua preda: eccola preda;
bramastila alfin morta: eccola a morte.
Che vuoi tu piú da lei? che ti può dare
piú di questo Dorinda? Ah garzon crudo!
Ah cor senza pietà! Tu non credesti
la piaga che per te mi fece Amore:
puoi questa or tu negar de la tua mano?
Non hai creduto il sangue
ch'i' versava dagli occhi:
crederai questo, che 'l mio fianco versa?

Voici, Silvio, celle que tu as tant en haine

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Voici, Silvio, celle que tu as tant en haine,
la voici dans l'état
dans lequel tu voulais la voir.
Tu désirais la blesser : tu l'as blessée ;
tu désirais ta proie : voici ta proie ;
tu désirais sa mort : la voici mourante.
Que veux-tu de plus d'elle ? Que peux
te donner de plus, Dorinda ? Ah, cruel garçon !
Ah, cœur sans pitié ! Tu ne croirais pas
la blessure que pour toi m'a faite Amour :
peux-tu nier qu'elle est de ta main ?
Tu n'as pas cru le sang
versé de mes yeux :
croiras-tu celui que mon flanc verse ?
