Or ch’a noi torna la stagion novella
Gli augei, le fiere e tutti gli animali
Senton d’amor i dolci acuti strali,
Te sola Amor non punge, ò d’ogni fiera
Più cruda in ciascun tempo e più superba;
Così dicea Damon tra fiori e l’erba
Dolcemente cantando a primavera.

Translation by Allen Garvin
Now that to us returns the new season,
the birds, the beasts and all the animals
feel the sweet and sharp darts of Cupid;
To only you Love does not strike, of each beast
the most cruel of any ever, and the most disdainful;
So says Damon among flowers and the grass
sweetly singing in spring.
