Z 328 "Ode to St Cecilia" 4. "'Tis Nature's Voice".

‘Tis Nature’s Voice thro’ all the moving Wood
Of Creatures understood:
The Universal Tongue to none
Of all her numerous Race unknown.
From her it learnt the mighty Art
To court the Ear or strike the Heart:
At once the Passions to express and move;
We hear, and straight we grieve or hate, rejoiced or love;
In unseen Chains it does the Fancy bind;
At once it charms the Sense and captivates the Mind.

Chésta mùseca è ‘a vóce d’a Natura.

Chésta mùseca è ‘a vóce d’a Natura,
che ‘dint’a sérva sènte ògne criatura:
‘a léngua ‘e tutt’o munno è canosciuta
‘a ògne spècie ‘ncòpp’a tèrra crisciuta.
‘A éssa ‘mparammo ll’arta pussènte
‘e ce fa adducì ‘a récchia o tuccà ‘a mènte;
ce fa ‘e ppassione esprìmere o causà,
patì, vulé bène o male e prià,
arravòglia ‘a fantasia cu caténe;
affattura ‘e sénze e ‘a mènte ‘ntrattène.
