Indarno Febo il suo bell'oro eterno e Cinzia mi disvela il puro argento, ch'io lontano da voi nulla non sento. E move indarno lusinghievol vento e tra bell'erbe di ruscello il suono, ch'io lontano da voi nulla non sento; Ohimè, dell'esser mio poco ragiono: ch'io lontano da voi nulla non sono.
- by Gabriello Chiabrera (1552 - 1638), from Vaghezze di musica [author's text not yet checked against a primary source]

In vain does Febo its eternal gold, in vain does Cinzia her pure silver reveal: when I am far from you, I feel nothing. In vain do seductive winds move around, or gentle creeks whisper through beautiful meadows: when I am far from you, I hear nothing. Alas, in vain I think about myself: when I am far from you, I am nothing.
