Donna, nel mio ritorno il mio pensiero
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Donna, nel mio ritorno il mio pensiero,
a cui nulla pon freno,
precorre dov'il ciel è più sereno
e se ne vien a far con voi soggiorno,
né da voi si diparte
giamai la nott'e il giorno,
perché l'annoia ciascun'altra parte,
onde sol per virtù del pensier mio
mentre ne vengo a voi con voi son io.

Madame, à mon retour mes pensées
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Madame, à mon retour mes pensées
Qu'aucun ne retiennent,
Courent où le ciel est plus serein
Et s'en vont séjourner avec vous,
Et elles ne vous quittent pas,
Jamais, de jour ou de nuit,
Parce que tous les autres endroits les ennuient.
Ainsi par le seul pouvoir de mes pensées
Pendant que je viens vers vous, je suis avec vous.
