Eran Ninfe e Pastori uniti
Contra le Grazi’ e con gl’Amori
E di suon’e di canti
facean tal armonia
Che si fermav’il sol, l’herba fioria;
Poi di ros’e d’acanti
Tessevano ghirlande d’amaranti
E nei versi dicean cogliend’i fiori:
Viva, viva la bella Dori!

English.png English translation

Nymphs and shepherds,
united with the graces and the gods of love
and with music and songs,
produced such harmony
that the sun stood still and the grass flowered.
Then from roses, acanthus,
and amaranth they wove garlands
and, in their verses, gathering flowers, they said:
“Long live fair Dori!”.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Nimfen en herders, tesamen
met de gratiën en de liefdesgoden,
maakten met muziek en liederen,
zo'n harmonieus geluid
dat de zon stil stond, en het gras bloeide.
Toen weefden zij slingers van rozen,
bereklauwen en kattestaarten,
en, bloemen rapend, zongen zij:
"Leve de schone Dori!"
