Lyrics

Lyrics (Francesco Landini)Poetic Translation (CAPL)
Ecco la primavera,Spring is here, with its graces,
Che’l cor fa rallegrare,So all our hearts are breezy.
Temp’è d’annamorareTo fall in love is easy;
E star con lieta cera.Time to have happy faces.
Noi vegiam l’aria e’l tempoAll the fresh air around us
Che pur chiam’ allegriaMaking us newly cheerful.
In questo vago tempoTime for a change has found us;
Ogni cosa vagheça.Beauty in all amasses.
L’erbe con gran frescheçaFresh are the newborn grasses,
E fior’ coprono i prati,The fields are full of flowers,
E gli albori adornatiAnd all the trees are towers,
Sono in simil manera.Blossoming in their places.
Ecco la primaveraSpring is here, with its graces,
Che’l cor fa rallegrareSo all our hearts are breezy.
Temp’è d’annamorareTo fall in love is easy;
E star con lieta cera.Time to have happy faces.
Francesco LandiniCarol Anne Perry Lagemann
