Ah! Belinda, Dido's aria from Dido and Aeneas

Ah! Belinda,
I am pressed with torment not to be confessed.
Peace and I are strangers grown.
I languish till my grief is known
Yet would not have it guessed.
Dido's Lament, Dido's aria from Dido and Aeneas

When I am laid in earth,
MAy my wrongs create,
No trouble in thy breast.
Remember me!
But ah! forget my fate!
Italian Translation of Dido's Lament from Dido and Aeneas

Quando mi giacerĂ² in terra
posson gli errori miei non tormentarti.
Rammentami; ma, ah!, scordati del mio fato crudel!
