Original


E lucevan le stelle
ed olezzava la terra.
Stridea l'uscio dell'orto
e un passo sfiorava la rena.
Entrava ella fragrante
mi cadea fra le braccia.

Oh dolci baci, o languide carezze,
mentr'io fremente
le belle forme
disciogliea dai veli.
Svani per sempre
il sogno mio d'amore.

L'ora é fuggita
e muoio disperato,
e muoio disperato.
E non ho amato
mai tanto la vita.
Tanto la vita!

Translation


The stars were shining,
And the earth was scented.
The gate of the garden creaked
And a footstep grazed the sand.
Fragrant, she entered
And fell into my arms.

Oh, sweet kisses and languorous caresses,
While feverishly I stripped
the beautiful form
of its veils!
Forever, my dream
of love has vanished.

That moment has fled,
and I die in desperation.
And I die in desperation!
And I never before loved
life so much,
Life so much!
