Text

Che l'agg'i' fatto a questa donna altera.
che cavato m'ha 'l core.

Ma tu che fa', Cupido? Or chT non tendi
l'arco e l'aurato strale?
Saetta in le', s8 ch'egual doglia senta.

Translation

What did I do to this disdainful woman
that she should steal my heart
and make me die through loving her?

What are you doing about it, Cupid? Why don't you use
your bow and your golden arrows?
Shoot one at her, so that she may feel as much pain as I do.
