Primavera/Spring

Allegro
Giunt’ è la Primavera e festosetti

La Salutan gl’ Augei con lieto canto,
E i fonti allo Spirar de’ Zeffiretti
Con dolce mormorio Scorrono intanto:
Vengon’ coprendo l’ aer di nero amanto
E Lampi, e tuoni ad annuntiarla eletti
Indi tacendo questi, gl’ Augelletti;
Tornan’ di nuovo al lor canoro incanto.

Largo

quindi sul fiorito ameno prato
Al caro mormorio di fronde e piante
Dorme ‘l Caprar col fido can’ à lato.

Allegro
Di pastoral Zampogna al suon festante
Danzan Ninfe e Pastor nel tetto amato
Di primavera all’ apparir brillante.

快板

立春的時節到了
鳥兒喜唱着歡迎她回臨的歌
,

微風輕輕地撫摸着
那細語般流動的溪澗
跟着黑罩着上空
作春的先驅是隆響着的雷暴
過後就靜悄悄的
小鳥又重新歌唱
慢板
由此在花叢滿佈的绿茵上
於葉滿枝头细语下
牧羊童跟他的狗恬睡着
快板
随着農村節日風笛 的欢声
少女與牧童轻快的起步
舞蹈在明朗的春天中
