Cosi al vostro tornar, le vostre genti,
Mostrar gioia signor estrem'e vera,
Sendo seren'il ciel placid'i venti,
Cantar le sacre ninfe, e ogni riviera risonò,
Buon compagno in dolc'accenti,
E tornò vaga e nova primavera.

Even so at your return, Sir, your people
showed extreme and true joy:
the sky being serene and the winds gentle,
the sacred nymphs sang, and every shore echoed
"Buoncampagno" in sweet accents,
and spring returned, new and lovely.
(Tr. Ruth I. DeFord)
