Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

23 - Trio

GALATEA, ACIS
The flocks shall leave the mountains,
The woods the turtle dove,
The nymphs forsake the fountains,
Ere I forsake my love!

POLYPHEMUS
Torture! fury! rage! despair!
I cannot, cannot bear!

GALATEA, ACIS
Not show'rs to larks so pleasing,
Nor sunshine to the bee,
Not sleep to toil so easing,
As these dear smiles to me.

POLYPHEMUS
Fly swift, thou massy ruin, fly!
Die, presumptuous Acis, die!
