Et je vins a toi ainsi qu'elle voulut : je t'otai de devant cette bete qui t'a prive 120 du court chemin vers la belle montagne. Allons : qu'as-tu? pourquoi, pourquoi t'attardes-tu, pourquoi accueilles-tu lachete dans ton creur, 123 pourquoi es-tu sans courage et sans tranquillite, puisque Jes trois dames benies ont souci de toi dans la cour du ciel, 126 et que mon parler te promet tant de bien ? » Comme fleurette inclinee et fermee par la gelee nocturne, quand le soleil l'eclaire, 129 se redresse epanouie sur sa tige, tel j'emergeai de ma vertu lassee, et tant de bon courage ressurgit dans mon creur 132 que je commenc;ai, comme un homme libre : « 0 clemente celle qui m'a secouru !

I' cominciai : « Poeta, volontieri parlerei a quei due che 'nsieme vanno, n e paion sf al vento esser leggeri. » Ed elli a me : « Vedrai quando saranno piu presso a noi ; e tu allor Ii priega 78 per quello amor che i mena, ed ei verranno. » Sf tosto come ii vento a noi Ii piega, mossi la voce : « 0 anime affannate, 81 venite a noi parlar, s'altri nol niega ! » Quali colombe dal disio chiamate con l'ali alzate e ferme al dolce nido s~ vegnon per l'aere, dal voler portate; cotali uscir de la schiera ov' e Dido, a noi venendo per l'aere maligno, 87 sf forte fu l'affettiioso grido.

Lo buon maestro a me : « Tu non dimandi che spiriti son questi che tu vedi? Or vo' che sappi, innanzi che piti andi, ch'ei non peccaro; e s'elli hanno mercedi, non basta, perche non ebber battesmo, ch'e porta de la fede che tu credi; e s'e' furon dinanzi al cristianesmo, non adorar debitamente a Dio : e di questo cotai son io medesmo. Per tai difetti, non per altro rio, semo perduti, e sol di tanto offesi che sanza speme vivemo in disio. » Gran duo! mi prese al cor quando lo 'ntesi, pero che gente di molto valore conobbi che 'n quel limbo eran sospesi.
