Text heard on Sample:
Myrtocle: Herr, geliebter Freund, in deine Arme drängt mein junger Leib, nach deinen Küssen sehnt sich heiss mein Mund. Wie? Grausamer! Schweigsame Gatte, stösst du mich zurück? Liebtest du mich nur, als ich, ein blindes Kind, noch tastend ging? Ich bin ein Weib nun, offen ist mein Blick! Mein Bild spiegelt sich in deinen Augen, und in dem Auge les ich alles auch, was mir dein Mund nicht spricht. Ich lese dein Verlangen, deinen Wunsch und alle heisse Liebe! Liebster, komm.

-----------------------------------

Myrtocle: Sir, dear friend, my young body desires your embrace; my mouth yearns hotly for your kisses. What? Cruel man! Silent husband, you push me back? Did you love me only when I, a blind child, groped as I walked? Well now I'm a woman; my eyes are open! My image is reflected in your eyes, and in your glance I read everything that your mouth doesn't speak. I read your desire, your wish, and all your hot love! Dearest, come!
