Amor, io sent’un respirar sì dolce
di Laura mia in questa piaggia aprica
[ch'ancor la fiamm'antica
nel cor si rinovella,]
e si leggiadr’e bella
tu me la mostr’Amore
che di dolcezza l’anima si more.

Love, I feel on this desolate shore
Laura's breath ever so sweetly
[that the ancient ardour
is rekindled in my heart,]
and you, Love, show her to me
so fair and graceful
that my soul drowns in sweetness.
