ILIA Zeffiretti lusinghieri, Deli volate al mio tesoro: E gli dite, ch'io l'adoro, Che mi serbi il cor fedel.
E voi piante, e fior sinceri, Che ora innaffia il pianto amaro, Dite a lui, che amor più raro Mai vedeste sotto al ciel.
English Libretto or Translation:
No. 19 - Aria ILIA Gently caressing zephyrs, oh fly to my beloved and tell him I adore him and to keep his heart true to me. And you plants and tender flowers which my bitter tears water, tell him that you never saw a love more rare beneath the sky.
