All’ombra d’un bel faggio,
Pastori e ninfe in s’una verde riva,
Tempravano del sol l’ardente raggio,
E sonando e danzando,
Ciascun giva d’amor dolce cantando,
E risonar s’udiva,
Tra le frondi de’mirti e de gl’allori,
Viva le bella Dori.

English.png English translation

In the shade of a beautiful beechwood tree,
shepherds and nymphs on a verdant shore
tempered the sun’s burning rays,
and while playing and dancing
each one, touched and singing sweetly of love,
could be heard resounding
through the leaves of myrtle and laurel:
“Long live fair Dori!”.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

In de schaduw van een mooie beuk
zitten herders en ninfen op een groene oever,
beschermd voor de brandende zonnestralen,
en terwijl zij speelden en dansten
liet eenieder, zoetelijk zingend over liefde,
door de bladeren van bessen en laurier
"Leve de schone Dori!"
