Original text and translations
To love the birds attune their cheerful throats,
And on each breeze immortal music floats.
[There seated on a rising turf is seen] (omitted)
Graceful, in loose array, the Cyprian queen,
All fresh and fair, all mild; as ocean gave
The goddess, rising from the azure wave;
Dishevell'd locks distil celestial dews,
And all her limbs divine perfumes disclose.
