Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Duet

In a foolish dream, in a gloomy labyrinth,
I hunted shadows, disdaining thy true love.
Forgive thy servant, who repents his madness.
Forgive Adonis and he shall faithful prove.

ANNE
What should I forgive? Thy ravishing penitence
blesses me, dear heart, and brightens all the past.
Kiss me, Adonis, the wild boar is vanquished.

TOM
Embrace me, Venus: I've come home at last!

ANNE, TOM
Rejoice, beloved: In these fields of Elysium,
space can not alter, nor time our love abate.
Here has no words for absence or estrangement,
nor now a notion of ''almost'' or ''too late.''
