by Giovanni Battista Guarini (1538 - 1612)

Voi pur da me partite, anima dura
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Voi pur da me partite, anima dura,
né vi duol il partire.
Ohimè! quest'è un morire
crudele, e voi gioite?
Quest'è vicino aver l'ora suprema,
e voi non lo sentite.
O meraviglia di durezza estrema:
esser alma d'un core
e separarsi, e non sentir dolore!
