Available translation(s): ENG
Di marziali allori
già t’adornasti assai;
di mirti è tempo ormai
che il crin ti cinga amor.
Mille di tua fortezza
prove donasti a noi;
abbia i trionfi suoi
la tua bellezza ancor.

You have already adorned yourself
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
You have already adorned yourself
with quite enough warlike laurels.
It is high time that the myrtle
come to encircle your brow.

You have proven to us
a thousand times over your strength.
Now let your beauty
have its own triumphs as well!
