Quanto sia liet’il giorno nel qual le cose antiche
Son hor da voi dimostr’ e celebrate:
Si vede perch’intorno tutte le genti antiche
Si son’ in questa parte radunate :
Noi che la nostr’etate nei bochi e nelle selve consumate
Venut’anchor qui siamo io nympha e noi pastori
Et giam cantando insieme i nostri amori.
