“Nymphs are we here, and in the sky are stars;

ere Beatrice came down into the world

we were ordained to be her maids. We ’ll lead thee

to see her eyes; but, for the joyous light

therein, the three upon the other side,

who more profoundly gaze, will sharpen thine.”

 

Thus singing they began; and thereupon

they led me with them to the Griffon’s breast,

where, turning toward us, Beatrice remained.

And “See to it that thou spare not thine eyes;”

they said, “before the emeralds we have set thee,

whence Love of old against thee drew his shafts.”

 

A thousand wishes hotter far than flames

bound mine eyes fast to those resplendent eyes,

which on the Griffon set their steady gaze.

As in a glass the sun, not otherwise

the two-fold Animal was gleaming in them,

at first in one, then in another way.

 

PURGATORIO, Canto XXXI, vv. 106-123
