Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Nerine Galatea, thymo mihi dulcior Hyblae,
candidior cycnis, hedera formosior alba,
cum primum pasti repetent praesepia tauri,
si qua tui Corydonis habet te cura, venito!

English.png English translation

Sea-Nymph Galatea, sweeter to me than thyme of Hybla,
whiter than the swan, lovelier than pale ivy,
as soon as the pastured bulls seek the yard again,
if you care at all for thy Corydon, come!

German.png German translation

Nereus' Kind, Galatea, mir süß vor hyblaeischem Thymus,
Weißer denn Schwäne, besiegend an Reiz blassgrünlichen Efeu,
Sobald von der Weide zurück zur Krippe die Rinder
Kehren, sofern etwas dir noch dein Corydon wert ist, komme!
