Clori nel mio partire

Bonifazio Bevilacqua (attr.)

Madrigal: aaBccBdDEEfF

Clori nel mio partireChloris, at my parting,
Languiva al mio languirelanguished at my languishing,
E da le luci ov’ha ricetto Amoreand from her eyes, where Love finds shelter,
Cadeano a mille a milledewy drops fell by the thousands.
Le rugiadose stille.
Cauto v’accorse il mio dolente coreMy aching heart cautiously hastened there,
E da’ begl’occhi intantoand stole with kisses that fair weeping from those lovely eyes.
Co’ baci n’involò quel vago pianto.
Meraviglia gentile e non più udita!O graceful, unheard-of marvel!
Quel pianto il cibo fu de la mia vita.Those tears were the nourishment of my life.
Or che di lei son privo,Now that I am deprived of her,
Mercè di quelle lagrime mi vivo.I live on those tears.

The same text, but with the incipit “Flora nel mio partire,” appears in I-Arc, ms. 453, c. 13v (see Cecchi, “List of Secular and Devotional Compositions by Luca Marenzio,” 489, n. XLIII).
