and
... in a dream, the languor of Summer heat
is relieved by the blur of flowers moving
.. with the wind and music.

Vivaldi wrote fragments of poetry on the manuscript
for his 'The Four Seasons'. Part of the one for Summer
is below:
"Under the heat of the burning summer sun,
... Languish man and flock; the pine is parched.
The cuckoo finds its voice, and suddenly,
... The turtledove and goldfinch sing.
A gentle breeze blows "

Bits And Bytes:
... the music of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons is based on four poems written by Antonio Vivaldi. Like the other three, Summer consists of a three-movement concerto. A prose translation of the original Italian for summer is below:

L'Estate (Summer)
Opus 8, No. 2, in G minor

I. Allegro non molto--
Under the heat of the burning summer sun,
... Languish man and flock; the pine is parched.
The cuckoo finds its voice, and suddenly,
... The turtledove and goldfinch sing.
A gentle breeze blows,
... But suddenly, the north wind appears.
The shepherd weeps because, overhead,
... Lies the fierce storm, and his destiny.

II. Adagio; Presto--
His tired limbs are deprived of rest
... By his fear of lightning and fierce thunder,
And by furious swarms of flies and hornets.

III. Presto--
Alas, how just are his fears,
... Thunder and lightening fill the Heavens, and the hail
Slices the tops of the corn and other grain.
