Love and Miss Lisa

Love and Miss Lisa 

And Guido and I

Can well thank the

Man who made who

Leave? I won’t name

The person because I’ll

Have it in to

Oblivion. Further, these three

Don’t want to hear

It; they were servants

In his guise, truthfully, 

None served him more,

Imagining he was god.

Thank love that he

Noticed in the first

Place, then, the wise

Woman withdrew her heart;

And Guido who’s still

Not concerned and I’m

Still with fallen virtue;

If, then, I’m pleased, 

Perhaps, it’s not believed.

Amore, e Mona Lagia,

E Guido, ed io possiam

Ben ringraziare un Ser

Costui, che n’ ha partiti,

Sapete da cui? Nol vo’

Contar per averlo in

Oblio. Poi questi tre

Piu’ non v’ hanno disio’;

Ch’ eran serventi di tal

Guisa in lui, che

Veramente piu’ di lor

Non fui, immaginando,

Ch’ elli fosse Iddio.

Sia ringraziato Amor,

Che se ne accorse

Primieramente, poi la

Donna saggia, che in

Quel punto li ritolse il

Core. E Guido ancor,

Che n’ e’ del tutto fore,

Ed io ancor, che n’ sua

Virtute caggia; se poi

Mi piacque, non si

Crede forse.
