“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
