Quando ridente e bella
più vaga d'ogni stella
mi si mostra Licori,
e seco scherzan lascivetti Amori,
tutto gioisco, e sì di gioia abbondo
che de la gioia mia gioisce il mondo.

English.png English translation

When, laughing and beautiful,
prettier than any star,
Licori shows herself to me,
and lustful Cupids play with her,
I wholly rejoice, and am filled with such abundant joy
that, at my joy, the world itself rejoices.

Translation by Campelli
