di parole amorose,
che mi legò da scherz'e non mi scioglie.
Così egli dunque scherz'e così coglie?
Così l'alme legate
sono ne le catene insidiose?
Almen chi sì m'allaccia
mi leg'ancor fra quelle dolci braccia.

Liens très doux
Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)
Liens très doux
De paroles amoureuses,
Qui me lient en jouant et ne me relâchent pas,
Est-ce ainsi que les âmes sont liées
Dans de subtiles chaînes ?
Au moins que celui qui m'attache
Me lie aussi dans ses doux bras.
