Spargete Ninfe d'Arno arabi odori,
A l'apparir di lei ch'io tant' honoro,
E su gli homeri belli e su'l crin d'oro,
Un nembo de piu vaghi e scelti fiori,

Volin d'intorno i pargoletti amori,
Lieti cantando in dilettoso choro,
Ecco chi d'honesta salvò il tesoro,
U' son hora le palm' u' son gli allori.
