Bramo veder un d

Source:  Ingegneri, 1579

Setting: 

Bramo veder un d per mia vendetta
il cuor tutto piagato
a chi cagion del mio misero stato;
e chieggio che di spiedi
i colpi sian, non di leggier saetta,
poich di lui non credo (Amor come ben sai)
chel pu crudel vedesse il sol giamai.



 
I yearn to see the day of my revenge
the heart all wounded
of he who is the reason for my wretched state;
and I ask that the blows
should come from lances, not light arrows,
since I do not believe (as you know well, Love)
that the sun ever saw another more cruel than he.
