Scrivo in te l' amato nome
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): GER
Scrivo in te l' amato nome
  Di colei, per cui mi moro,
  Caro al Sol felice alloro,
  Come Amor l' impresse in me.
Qual tu serbi ogni tua fronda, 
  Serbi Clori a me costanza:
  Ma non sia la mia speranza
  Infeconda al par di te.

Ich ritz’ in dich den teuren Namen
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Ich ritz’ in dich den teuren Namen
dess’, für den ich sterbe,
sonnengeliebter, glücklicher Lorbeer,
wie Amor ihn ins Herz mir schrieb.
Wie du Blatt und Zweig bewahrst,
mög Clori mir die Treue wahren,
auf dass ich nicht hab zu erfahren,
dass mein Hoffen nicht mehr grünt.
