Lyrics & English translation

Just a few flowers, humble violets,
they are the breath of April
with their tender fragrance;
And for you
I have snatched them from the sunshine....
If they could speak
You would hear them say:
We are timid and shy daughters of spring
We are your friends;
We shall die this evening,
but we are happy
to wish you, who love the unfortunate:
may heaven grant you
all the good things that it is possible to hope for.
and in my heart adds
a modest but sincere word:
May your life which brings comfort to others
be eternal spring...
Ah, desire to accept
All that I can offer!

Son pochi fiori, povere viole,
Son l'alito d'aprile
Dal profumo gentile;
Ed è per voi
che le ho rapite al sole...
Se avessero parole,
le udreste mormorar:
Noi siamo figlie timide e pudiche
Siamo le vostre amiche;
Morremo questa sera,
Ma morremo felici
Di dire voi, che amate gl'infelici:
Il ciel vi possa dar
Tutto quel bene che si può sperar.
Ed il mio cor aggiunge
una parola modesta, ma sincera:
Eterna primavera La vostra vita sia,
ch'altri consola...
Deh, vogliate gradir
Quanto vi posso offrir!
