Translation by Ferdinand Gregorovius (1821 - 1891)

La luna s'è venuta a lamentare
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
La luna s'è venuta a lamentare
Inde la faccia del divino Amore:
Dice che in cielo non ci vuol piú stare;
Ché tolto gliel'avete lo splendore.

E si lamenta, e si lamenta forte.
L'ha conto le sue stelle, non son tutte.
E gliene manca due, e voi l'avete:
Son que' du' occhi che in fronte tenete.

Klagen ist der Mond gekommen,
Vor der Sonne Angesicht,
Soll ihm noch der Himmel frommen,
Da du Glanz ihm nahmst und Licht?

Seine Sterne ging er zählen,
Und er will vor Leid vergehn:
Zwei der schönsten Sterne fehlen,
Die in deinem Antlitz stehn.
