All’apparir di Dori anzi del sole,
Vedersi germogliar rose e viole,
Et ad onta del verno,
Rise à l’herbe, à le piante April eterno,
Onde le ninfe insieme e i pastori,
Godend’ à schiera,
Si dolce primavera,
Cantavan sparsi d’odorati fiori:
Viva la bella Dori.

English.png English translation

At the appearance of Dori at dawn
roses and violets were seen budding,
and, putting winter to shame,
eternal April smiled on the plants and trees.
Wherefore the nymphs, together with the shepherds
enjoying all together
such a sweet springtime,
sang, decked with fragrant flowers:
“Long live fair Dori!”.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Bij het verschijnen van Dori voor zonsopgang
ontloken rozen en viooltjes,
en, de winter trotserend,
lachte April de planten en bomen weer toe.
Daarom genoten de nimfen
tesamen met de herders
van zo'n zachte lente,
en zongen, bedekt met geurende bloemen:
"Leve de schone Dori!"
