Alme d’amor rubelle Che con leggiadri suoni e dolci accenti Frenar potete i venti. E invaghite di voi l’ardenti stelle: Beato chi v’ascolta e chi vi mira Beato chi per voi langue e sospira.

Esprits d'amour rebelles Qui avec des sons légers et de doux accents Pouvez ralentir les vents, Et faire tomber amoureux de vous les étoiles scintillantes, Bienheureux soit celui qui vous écoute et vous voit. Bienheureux soit celui qui pour vous languit et soupire.
