  O primavera
Claudio Monteverdi
Lyrics

O primavera, gioventù de l’anno,

bella madre de’ fiori,

d’herbe novelle e di novelli amori.

 

Tu ben lasso ritorni

ma senza i cari giorni

de le speranze mie.

 

Tu ben sei quella

ch’eri pur dianzi

si vezzosa e bella.

 

Ma non son io,

quel che già un tempo fui

sì cara agl’occhi altrui.


 (Giovanni Battista Guarini)

O spring

 

O spring, when the year is young,

who give birth to flowers,

to new grass and new loves

 

Round you come again,

but without the dear days

of my hopes.

 

You are just

as you were before

so delightful and lovely.

 

But I am not

as I once was,

so dear to another’s eyes.
