Selve beate,
se sospirando in flebili susurri,
al nostro lamentar vi lamentaste,
gioite anco al gioire, e tante lingue
sciogliete quante frondi
scherzano al suon di queste,
piene del gioir nostro aure ridenti.

English.png English translation

O happy woods,
since often you quietly sighed
and wept at our weeping,
then rejoice also in our joy, and use
as many tongues as all the leaves
that quiver at the sound of these
sweet winds, full of our rejoicing.

Translation by Campelli
