I nest on a sweet branch, in such a way that I can thank and praise the great refusal that conquered the deep feeling at last, and carved on my soul: I am she who made such war on you, and finished my day before the evening.
So I could not even form true words that anyone but me could understand: A sweet honest action is a fine thing: I am not strong enough to gaze at the light of that lady, and do not know how to make a screen from shadowy places, or the late hour: Song, if you had as much beauty as you wished, you could boldly leave this wood, and go among people.
Your REgal state, that I next encounter, doubles my power for the high attempt; but: But you, eyes of beauty, from which I felt the blow, not wearing a helmet or a shield, you see me naked, inside and out, though my grief is not poured out in tears. So, whenever one calls out to you, the voice itself teaches us to LAud, REvere, you, O, lady worthy of all reverence and honour: The meadows smile, and the skies grow clear: Take heed therefore, mine eyes, how ye do stare Henceforth too rashly on that guileful net, In which if ever ye entrapped are, Out of her bands ye by no means shall get.
And, ah me, the sweet smile, from which the arrow of death, the only good I hope for now, issued: But that sweet joyful face whose image I carry engraved in my breast, and see wherever I gaze, constrains me: I do not flee from privacy and rest as much as from my self and from my thoughts, which lifted me in flight when I followed them: The proverb is true, that our hair changes before our vices, and though the senses slow the human passions have no less intensity: One goes down many miles to be at rest.
Will the day come, ever, that only as I wish the sweet air that adorns her lovely face might please these eyes, and only as is fitting? Let it please her to watch for my passing, that is near now: But, alas, for me there are no flowering valleys, rather I weep in clear skies or in rain, and in the chill and in the gentle winds: Her way of moving was no mortal thing, but of angelic form: Polyclitus was the Greek artist of the fifth century BC.
Alas, that must be why sorrow attacks laughter in the end, and why I interrupt that burning rapture to return to myself, and think of myself again.
So, confused by the first assault, it had no opportunity or strength to take up arms when they were needed, or withdraw me shrewdly to the high, steep hill, out of the torment, from which it wishes to save me now but cannot. But fear and cold did not prevent me from feeling so much confidence in my heart that I threw myself at her feet to gather more sweetness from her eyes: Where is the gentle shadow of a human face that gave its hour of rest for my weary soul, and where my every thought was written?
See poem 44 for Pompey. O living death, O delightful evil, how can you be in me so, if I do not consent? And so it is that every mind veils its passion with its opposite, cloaked with a bright or a dark look: Blessed be all those verses I scattered calling out the name of my lady, and the sighs, and the tears, and the passion:In Shakespeare's "Sonnet ": "Before, a joy proposed; behind, a dream."
