Altri canti d'Amor

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Altri canti d'Amor, tenero arciero,
I dolci vezzi, e i sospirati baci;
Narri gli sdegni e le bramate paci
Quand'unisce due alme un sol pensiero.

Di Marte io canto, furibondo e fiero,
I duri incontri, e le battaglie audaci;
Strider le spade, e bombeggiar le faci,
Fo nel mio canto bellicoso e fiero.

Tu cui tessuta han di cesareo alloro
La corona immortal Marte e Bellona,
Gradisci il verde ancor novo lavoro,

Che mentre guerre canta e guerre sona,
Oh gran Fernando, l'orgoglioso choro,
Del tuo sommo valor canta e ragiona.

Que d'autres chantent d'Amour

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

Que d'autres chantent d'Amour, le tendre archer,
Les doux charmes et les baisers pleins de désir ;
Qu'ils racontent les dédains et les réconciliations recherchées
Quand une seule pensée réunit deux âmes.

Je chante de Mars, furieux et fier,
Les rencontres âpres et les batailles audacieuses ;
Je fais grincer l'épée et jeter des étincelles les feux,
Par mon chant belliqueux et fier.

Toi pour qui du laurier de César a été tressée
La couronne immortelle par Mars et Bellona,
Accepte cette œuvre verte et nouvelle.

Pendant que les chants guerriers résonnent,
Ô grand Fernand, le chœur orgueilleux
De ta haute valeur chante les louanges.
