Vieni Flora gentil, vieni e discaccia
La nubilosa pioggia e'l verno rio,
Dagli occhi e dal cor mio,
Ne' la tua dolce vista,
Lieta vedrai gioir l'anima trista
E sparger nel tuo grembo amati fiori,
Tra noi scherzando i pargoletti Amori.

Translation by Allen Garvin
Come gentle Flora, come and chase away
the cloudy rain and the miserable winter
from my eyes and from my heart.
In your sweet sight,
happy, you will see the sad soul rejoice,
and scattering in your lap beloved flowers
the little cupids disport among us.
