...fia a ci? pi? di me degna:

con lei ti lascer? nel mio partire;

 ch? quello imperador che l? s? regna,

perch'i' fu' ribellante a la sua legge,

non vuol che 'n sua citt? per me si vegna.

 In tutte parti impera e quivi regge;

quivi ? la sua citt? e l'alto seggio:

oh felice colui cu' ivi elegge!».

 E io a lui: «Poeta, io ti richeggio

...heard 
when I first felt compassion for your pain. 


Io era tra color che son sospesi, 
e donna mi chiam? beata e bella, 
tal che di comandare io la richiesi . 

I was among those souls who are suspended; 
a lady called to me, so blessed, so lovely 
that I implored to serve at her command. 


Lucevan li occhi suoi pi? che la stella; 
e cominciommi a dir soave e piana, 
con angelica voce, in sua favella : 

Her eyes surpassed the splendor of the star's; 
and she ...Read More

...My limbs are wasted with a flame,
My feet are sore with travelling,
For, calling on my Lady's name,
My lips have now forgot to sing.

O Linnet in the wild-rose brake
Strain for my Love thy melody,
O Lark sing louder for love's sake,
My gentle Lady passeth by.

She is too fair for any man
To see or hold his heart's delight,
Fairer than Queen or cour...Read More

left the Guinea Coast 
with cargo of five hundred blacks and odd

"That there was hardly room 'tween-decks for half

...e mirabil cosa
mi torse il viso a s?; e per? quella
cui non potea mia cura essere ascosa,
 volta ver' me, s? lieta come bella,
«Drizza la mente in Dio grata», mi disse,
«che n'ha congiunti con la prima stella».
 Parev'a me che nube ne coprisse
lucida, spessa, solida e pulita,
quasi adamante che lo sol ferisse.
 Per entro s? l'etterna margarita
ne ricevette, com'acqua recepe
raggio di luce permanendo unita.
 S'io era corpo, e qui non si concepe
com'una dimensione a...Read More

...con le Bilance,
che le caggion di man quando soverchia;
 sì che le bianche e le vermiglie guance,
là dov'i' era, de la bella Aurora
per troppa etate divenivan rance.
 Noi eravam lunghesso mare ancora,
come gente che pensa a suo cammino,
che va col cuore e col corpo dimora.
 Ed ecco, qual, sorpreso dal mattino,
per li grossi vapor Marte rosseggia
giù nel ponente sovra 'l suol marino,
 cotal m'apparve, s'io ancor lo veggia,
un lume per lo mar venir sì ratto,
che 'l muo...Read More

Running in golden tides to Ryton Firs,
To make the knot of steep little wooded hills
Their brightest show: O bella età de l'oro!
Now I breathe you again, my woods of Ryton:
Not only golden with your daffodil-fires
Lying in pools on the loose dusky ground
Beneath the larches, tumbling in broad rivers
Down sloping grass under the cherry trees
And birches: but among your branches clinging
A mist of that Ferrara-gold I first
Loved in the easy hours then green w...Read More

...O bella bionda,
Sei come l'onda!


Of cool sweet dew and radiance mild
The moon a web of silence weaves
In the still garden where a child
Gathers the simple salad leaves.

A moondew stars her hanging hair
And moonlight kisses her young brow
And, gathering, she sings an air:
Fair as the wave is, fair, art thou!

Be mine, I pray, a waxen ear
To shield me fro...Read More

...III

Qual in colle aspro, al imbrunir di sera
L'avezza giovinetta pastorella
Va bagnando l'herbetta strana e bella
Che mal si spande a disusata spera
Fuor di sua natia alma primavera,
Cosi Amor meco insu la lingua snella
Desta il fior novo di strania favella,
Mentre io di te, vezzosamente altera,
Canto, dal mio buon popol non inteso
E'l bel Tamigi cangio col bel Arno 
Amor lo volse, ed io a l'altrui peso
Seppi ch' Amor cosa mai volse indarno.
Deh! foss' il mio ...Read More
