Candido e vago fiore,
Colto dalla più bella e rara mano
Che mai vedesse nel suo regno Amore;
Se ti vedrai lontano
Dalla mia donna bella,
Che vince in beltà la terza stella,
Non dei languir dell’atto dolce umano,
Ma temprar tua partita,
Coll’aver dato aita
Al più perfetto amante,
Ch’adora in terra le sue luci sante.

Fair white flower,
Picked by the most beautiful and rare hand
That Love ever saw in his realm,
If I should ever see you far
From my beautiful lady,
Who surpasses the third star (Venus) in beauty,
Do not bemoan this sweet human deed,
But temper the twinge of your demise
For you will have come to the aid
Of the most consummate lover
Who worships his lover’s sacred eyes here on earth.
