Excerpt from The Paradiso of Dante Alighieri

Subject matter (1-12) and invocation (13-36). The sun is in the equinoctial point. It is midday at Purgatory and midnight at Jerusalem, when Dante sees Beatrice gazing at the sun and instinctively imitates her gesture, looking away from her and straight at the sun (37-54). The light glows as though God had made a second sun, and Dante now turns once more to Beatrice who is gazing heavenward. As he looks his human nature is transmuted to the quality of heaven and he knows not whether he is still in the flesh or no (55-75). They pass through the sphere of fire and hear the harmonies of heaven, but Dante is

La gloria di colui che tutto move
per l' universo penetra, e risplende
in una parte più:, e meno altrove.
Nel ciel che più: della sua luce prende
fu' io: e vidi cose che ridire
nè: sa nè: può: qual di lassù: discende:
perchè:, appressando sè: al suo disire,
nostro intelletto si profonda tanto,
che retro la memoria non può: ire.
Veramente quant' io del regno santo
nella mia mente potei far tesoro,
sarà: ora materia del mio canto.
O buono Apollo, all' ultimo lavoro
fammi del tuo valor si fatto vaso,
come dimandi a dar l' amato alloro.
Inlino a qui l' un giogo di Parnaso
assai mi fu, ma or con ambo e due
m' è: uopo entrar nell' aringo rimaso.
Entra nel petto mio, e spira tue
si come quando Marsia traesti
della vagina delle membra sue.
