Le violette
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER GRE IRI POR SPA
Rugiadose
Odorose
Violette graziose,
Voi vi state
Vergognose,
Mezzo ascose
Fra le foglie,

E sgridate
Le mie voglie,
Che son troppo ambiziose.

Les violettes
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Humides de rosée,
Odorantes,
Violettes gracieuses,
Vous vous tenez
Timidement,
À moitié cachées
Dans les feuilles.

Et vous riez
De mes désirs,
Qui sont trop ambitieux.
