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 !

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.
