Che v'ho fato
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Che v'ho fato, o luci, dite, 
Che ad ognor mi tormentate? 
Se pietà voi mi negate, 
A che fine mi ferite? 
Di saettarmi il cor cessate, o rai, 
Già che piagate e non sanate mai. 
O mio sole, dunque sempre 
Tu m'alletti acciò ch'io mora, 
Né per me mutansi ancora 
Del destin le fiere tempre. 
Di riscaldarmi il sen fermate omai, 
Già che promovi e non rissolvi mai.

Que vous ai‑je fait
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Que vous ai-je fait, ô mes yeux, dites-moi,
Qui vous fait me tourmenter à toute heure ?
Si vous me refusez la pitié
Dans quel but me blessez-vous ?
Cessez de lancer des traits sur mon cœur, ô yeux,
Puisque vous blessez et ne guérissez jamais.
Ô mon soleil, ainsi toujours
Tu m'attires jusqu'à ce que je meure,
Et pour moi jusque là cela ne change pas
Le dur caractère du destin.
Arrêtez d'échauffer ma poitrine
Puisque tu commences et que tu ne résous jamais.
