Ite voi, che chiudeste
L'orribil fera,a dar l'usato segno
De la futura caccia; ite svegliando
Gli occhi col corno e con le voci i cori.
Se fu mai ne l'Arcadia
Pastor, di Cintia e de'suoi studi amico
Cui stimolasse il generoso petto
Cura o gloria di selve,
Oggi il mostri,e mi segua.

Il pastor fido (A1;S1;1;Silvio)
 

English.png English translation

Go, ye that have the frightful monster lodg'd,
And give the wonted signal for the chase;
Go, with your cheerful cries, and echoing horns,
Dispel dull sleep, and rouse the listless heart.
If in Arcadia there was ever found
A shepherd swain, a friend to Cynthia's sports,
Whose gen'rous breast the pleasures of the chase
And glory gain'd in woods could stimulate,
If such a swain there be, now let him show
His love of toils like these, by following me.
Translated by William Clapperton
