Non più di fiori

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

Non più di fiori, vaghe catene,
Discenda Imene ad intrecciar.
Stretta fra barbare aspre ritorte
Veggo la morte ver me avanzar.
Infelice! qual'orore!
Ah! di me che si dirà?
Chi vedesse il mio dolore,
pur avria di me pietà?
Infelice! qual'orore!

Hymen ne descendra plus

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

Hymen ne descendra plus
Pour tresser de belles guirlandes de fleurs.
Entravé par des chaînes cruelles et rudes
Je vois la mort s'avancer vers moi.
Malheureuse ! Quelle horreur !
Ah ! Que dira-t-on de moi ?
Celui qui verrait ma douleur,
Il prendrait pourtant pitié de moi.
Malheureuse ! Quelle horreur !
