Felice primavera

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Felice primavera
Di bei pensier fiorisce nel mio core
Novo lauro d'amore
A cui ride la terra e il ciel d'intorno,
E di bel manto adorno
Di giacinti e viole il Po si veste:
Danzan le ninfe oneste e i pastorelli
E i susurranti augelli in fra le fronde
Al mormorar de l'onde: e vaghi fiori
Donan le Grazie a i pargoletti Amori.

Kevät on onnen aikaa!

Language: Finnish (Suomi) after the Italian (Italiano)

Kevät on onnen aikaa!
Sydämeni on täynnä suloisia ajatuksia;
niistä versoo Amorin uusi laakeriseppele.
Sille hymyilee maa ja taivas sen yllä,
ja kauniiseen viittaan, 
hyasinteilla ja orvokeilla koristettuun, verhoutuu Po-joki.
Rehelliset nymfit tanssivat paimenten kanssa.
Visertelevät linnut oksillansa,
aaltojen solina ja ihanat kukat
sulostuttavat lemmenjumalien leikkiä.
