Lark

“Quale allodetta che ‘n aere si spazia
prima cantando, e poi tace contenta
de l’ultima dolcezza che la sazia,
tal mi sembiò l’imago de la ‘mprenta
de l’etterno piacere.”

“Like the lark that soars in the air, first singing, then silent, content with the last sweetness that satiates it, such seemed to me that image, the imprint of the Eternal Pleasure.”

Durante degli Alighieri (Dante)
La divina commedia
Paradiso
Canto XX, lines 73-77.
