Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Provate la mia fiamma,
Fiamma de la mia fiamma,
E sentirete poi,
Come sia caldo il foco,
Co'l quale ardete voi,
Né à schivo haver dovete,
Che quel foco arda voi
di che altri ardete.

English.png English translation

Feel my flame,
flame of my flame,
and you shall then feel
how hot is the fire
with which you burn;
nor be you wary
that that same fire burn you,
with which you burn others.

Translation by Campelli
