Scendi dal paradiso, Venere,
E teco guida i pargoletti amor, le gratie e 'l riso,
Oltre l'usato rida,
In vista 'l ciel sereno,
Il Tebr'al mar Thirreno,
Porti di perl'adorno
Invece d'acqu'il corno,
E i vostri canti giungan'alle stelle,
Poiche' l'anime belle d'Amarilli e di Tirsi son unite.
Al nodo sacro e santo, com'all'olmo la vite,
O al tronco l'heder' o l'acanto.
