L'ombra dei rami tuoi, Venere's aria from Ascanio in Alba

L'ombra dei rami tuoi     	The gentle ground waits for
l'amico suolo aspetta,    	the shadow of your branches, 
vivi mia pianta eletta,   	live, my elect son,
degna sarai di me.        	you will be worthy of me.
Già questo cor comprende  	Now my heart understands 
quel che sarai di poi;    	what you will be one day;
già di sue cure intende   	now they want to praise in you
l'opra lodarsi in te.     	the result of my maternal love.
