She never told her love
Language: English 
Available translation(s): DUT IRI ITA
She never told her love,
But let concealment, like a worm in the bud,
Feed on her damask cheek...;
She sat, like Patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief.

Mai raccontò il suo amore
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the English 
Mai raccontò il suo amore
Ma lo tenne celato, come un verme nel bocciolo,
Nutrito dalle sue guance di Damasco ... ;
Sedeva, monumento alla Pazienza,
Sorridendo alla pena.
