Infelici affetti miei, Silva's aria from Ascanio in Alba

Infelici affetti miei,       	Oh,my unhappy affections,
solo per voi sospiro, e peno 	for you only I sigh and suffer                                           
innocente รจ questoi seno:    	innocent is my heart:
nol venite a tormentar.      	don't trouble it.
Ah quest'alma, eterni dei,   	Ah this soul,eternal gods,
mi rendete alfin qual era.   	return to me like it was.
Poi l'imagin lusinghiera     	And,pleasant image of him,
non mi torni ad agitar.      	dont come to torment me.
