Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Gioite tutti in suoni e’n canti e’n balli
Poi che la vaga primavera è giunta
E fioriscon le valli
E fuor la rosa spunta
Scherzan gl’amori
E van spargendo fiori.

Prendete ninfe i vostri almi pastori
Che la stagion novella invita al ballo;
Hor sfogate gl’ardori
Senza porv’intervallo
Liete, calcate
Le verd’herbette grate.

English.png English translation

Rejoice all with sounds, songs and dances
since the fair Spring has come
and the valleys are blossoming
and the rose is in full bloom.
The lovers are jesting
and scattering flowers.

Take, Nymphs, your dear Shepards,
for the new season invites to dance;
enjoy your passions
without any rest.
Let's walk
On the green and happy grass.

Summer is passing and Winter is coming,
but let's enjoy the fruit of Love.
For the gentle eyes
and the shapes of angels
are gone
as the hair becomes white.

Translation by Andrea Friggi
