Quando lieta vezzosa,
Al mormorio dell’onde
Dori stanca riposa,
E tra bei gigli le sue rose asconde,
Ride’l bel prato adorno,
E l’aria d’ogni’ intorno
S’empie di canti e suoni,
Di muse e ninfe, satiri e pastori,
Ch’ebri di gaudio e di stupor aspersi,
Cantaro in dolci versi,
Alternando à più chori,
Viva la bella Dori.

English.png English translation

When graceful and happy
at the murmur of the waves,
tired Dori reposes
and among fair lilies hides her own roses,
the spangled meadow laughs
and the air all around
is filled with songs and sounds,
with muses and nymphs, satyrs and shepherds
who, intoxicated with joy and fraught
with amazement, sing sweet verses
in several alternate choirs:
“Long live fair Dori!”.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Wanneer de vermoeide Dori rust,
tevreden en gelukkig,
bij het gekabbel van de bron,
waar rozen tussen de mooie lelies groeien,
lacht de bloeiende weide
en de lucht er om heen is
vervuld van gezang en geluiden,
met muzen en nimfen, saters en herders,
die, dronken van vreugde en opwinding,
lieflijke verzen zingen
in allerlei wisselende koren:
"Leve de schone Dori!"
