by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

Il pastor, se torna aprile
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Il pastor, se torna aprile,
Non rammenta i giorni algenti;
Dall'ovile all'ombre usate
Riconduce i bianchi armenti,
E le avene abbandonate
Fa di nuovo risonar.

Il nocchier, placato il vento,
Più non teme o si scolora;
Ma contento in su la prora
Va cantando in faccia al mar.
