Available translation(s): ENG
Con palme ed allori  
t'invita la gloria,
con serti di fiori
t'alletta l'amor.

Ma, povero amante,
con doppia vittoria
invano tu speri
dar pace al tuo cor.

With palms and laurels
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
With palms and laurels
glory invites you,
and love entices you
with floral garlands.

But, wretched lover,
in vain do you hope
that this double victory
will pacify your heart.
