by Gaius Valerius Catullus (c84 BCE - 54 BCE)
Translation by Mario Rapisardi (1844 - 1912)

Si quicquam mutis gratum acceptumve...
Language: Latin 
Si quicquam mutis gratum acceptumve sepulcris
accidere a nostro, Calve, dolore potest, 
quo desiderio veteres renovamus amores 
atque olim missas flemus amicitias, 
certe non tanto mors immatura dolori est 
Quintiliae, quantum gaudet amore tuo

Se il desiderio, onde a’ suoi dì felici
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the Latin 
Se il desiderio, onde a’ suoi dì felici
     Rivive il cor tra’ suoi perduti amici,

Se il dolor nostro i muti avelli molce
     Ed agli estinti alcun ricordo è dolce,

5L’acerba fin Quintilia or non lamenta
     Quanto dell’amor tuo, Calvo, è contenta.
