Ombre Pallide

Ombre pallide, lo so, mi udite;
d’intorno errate, e vi celate,
sorde da me: perché? Perché?
Fugge il mio bene; voi lo fermate
deh! Per pietate,
se in questa verga, ch’ora disprezzo,
e voglio frangere, forza non è.

You pale shadows

Versions: #1#2
You pale shadows, I know you hear me;
You hover around me and conceal yourselves,
and are deaf to my words. Why? Why?
My lover flees from me; stop him,
for pity’s sake,
if this wand, which I now despise
and would break, has lost its power.
