Bel mirar

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the Greek (Ελληνικά)

Bel mirar la desïata
Primavera ritornata! 
Già le Grazie fan vezzose
Dalla buccia uscir le Rose. 
     Bel mirar . . . 
Mira il placido Sereno 
Ammolir l'ondoso Seno,
Nuotar l'Anatra ciarliera,
e la Gru gir passaggiera, 
Nè su i rai del Sol nel Cielo
Splender Nubi il fosco velo. 
Spiender veggono i Cultori
Su le terre i lor Lavori. 
S'apre il Suolo al Frutto ch'esce,
Su l'Olivo il Germe cresce. 
     Splender veggono . . . 
Già di Bromioil Tralcio scarco
Si prepara al nuovo Incarco
Del divin, che infonde Umore,
Forza al petto, e gioia al core. 
     Già di Bromio . . . 
Pe' Germogli e per le Fronde,
Rigoglioso si diffonde, 
Lussureggia dapertutto, 
E a spuntar fioreggia il frutto. 
     Pe' Germogli . . .
