Dolce color d'oriental zaffiro,

Che s'accoglieva nel sereno aspetto

Dell'aer puro infino al primo giro,
Agli occhi miei ricominciò diletto,

Tosto ch'io usci fuor dell'aura morta,
Che m'avea contristato gli occhi e'l petto.

DANTE, Purgatorio, I. 13-18.

The orient sapphire's hue of sweetest tone,
Which gathered in the aspect calm and bright

Of that pure air as far as heaven's first zone,
Now to mine eyes brought back the old delight

Soon as I passed forth from the dead dank air
Which eyes and heart had veiled with saddest night.

PLUMPTRE.
