Text

Fatto m'ha sdegno partir via d'amore
s8 che di servo son fatto signore.

Chi porta fed'altru' oltre misura
ragion nol move e senno nol conduce.
ch'i' fui servo con la mente pura.
Tra mie pensier tu fosti spechio e luce:
or ho di sdegno scudo che riluce.
s8 che invan tira chi saetta al core.

Translation

Indignation has made me leave my love.
I was her servant, I am now my own master.

Whoever is loyal to another beyond measure
is neither moved by reason nor led by wisdom.
and the same goes for servants with naive minds.
You were a mirror and a light to my thoughts:
now I have a shining shield of indignation.
Thus who aims at my heart will shoot his darts in vain.
