Available translation(s): ENG
Fra mille furori
che calma non hanno,
fra mille timori
che intorno mi stanno,
accender mi sento,
mi sento gelar.
In quei che lusingo
mi fingo i rubelli;
e tremo di quelli
che faccio tremar.

Among one thousand furors deprived of calm
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Among one thousand furors deprived of calm,
among one thousand fears which are all around me,
I feel myself burning and freezing all over.

Those that I flatter,
I imagine to be enemies,
and I tremble in the face 
of those I cause to tremble.
