"But ah! unhailie pilgrim, lerne of me, 
Scathe anie give a rentrolle to their Lorde. 
Here take my semecope, thou arte bare I see; 
Tis thyne; the Seynctes will give me mie rewarde." 
He left the pilgrim, and his waie aborde.

Or give the mittee will, or give the gode man power....Read More

...ut know that I in pure simplicitie
Breathe out the flames which burn within my heart,
Loue onely reading vnto me this arte. 

Like some weak lords neighbord by mighty kings,
To keep themselues and their chief cities free,
Do easily yeeld that all their coasts may be
Ready to store their campes of needfull things;
So Stellas heart, finding what power Loue brings
To keep it selfe in life and liberty,
Doth willing graunt that in the frontiers he

...le, bie eve's dark surcote graie, 
Twayne lonelie shepsterres dyd abrodden flie, 
(The rostlyng liff doth theyr whytte hartes affraie,) 
And whythe the owlette trembled and dyd crie; 
Firste Roberte Neatherde hys sore boesom stroke, 
Then fellen on the grounde and thus yspoke. 

Ah, Raufe! gif thos the howres do comme alonge, 
Gif thos wee flie in chase of farther woe, 
Oure fote wylle fayle, albeytte wee bee stronge,

...un foco

ch'emisperio di tenebre vincia.

 Di lungi n'eravamo ancora un poco,

ma non s? ch'io non discernessi in parte

ch'orrevol gente possedea quel loco.

 «O tu ch'onori scienzia e arte,

questi chi son c'hanno cotanta onranza,

che dal modo de li altri li diparte?».

 E quelli a me: «L'onrata nominanza

che di lor suona s? ne la tua vita,

grazia acquista in ciel che s? li avanza».

 Intanto voce fu per me udita:

«Onorate l'altissimo poeta:

...thought, and there forgett the wrongs
Which I have suffer'd by deceitfull tongues.
I should depart where soules departed bee,
Who being freed from cloudy flesh, can see
Each other so immediately, so cleare
That none needs tongue to speak, nor ears to hear.
Were tongues intended to express the soule,
And can wee better doe't with none at all?
Were words first made our meaning to reveale,
And are they usde our meaning to conceale?
The ayre by which wee see, will that t...Read More

Paradiso: Canto I

 La gloria di colui che tutto move
per l'universo penetra, e risplende
in una parte pi? e meno altrove.
 Nel ciel che pi? de la sua luce prende
fu' io, e vidi cose che ridire
n? sa n? pu? chi di l? s? discende;
 perch? appressando s? al suo disire,
nostro intelletto si profonda tanto,
che dietro la memoria non pu? ire.
 Veramente quant'io del regno santo
ne la mia mente potei far tesoro,
sar? ora materia del mio canto.

che 'nfino ad essa li pare ire in vano.
 Quando noi fummo là 've la rugiada
pugna col sole, per essere in parte
dove, ad orezza, poco si dirada,
 ambo le mani in su l'erbetta sparte
soavemente 'l mio maestro pose:
ond'io, che fui accorto di sua arte,
 porsi ver' lui le guance lagrimose:
ivi mi fece tutto discoverto
quel color che l'inferno mi nascose.
 Venimmo poi in sul lito diserto,
che mai non vide navicar sue acque
omo, che di tornar sia poscia esperto.Read More
