S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,

Strange fits of passion have I known:
And I will dare to tell,
But in the lover's ear alone,
What once to me befell.
When she I loved looked every...
SUDDENLY I saw the cold and rook-delighting Heaven
That seemed as though ice burned and was but the more ice,
