La Vita Nuova

In that book which is
My memory . . .
On the first page
That is the chapter when
I first met you
Appear the words . . .
Here begins a new life.

– Dante Alighieri

Wow.

  1. I hope I’m not the only one that went “Wow, Dante wrote that??”

    Yeah. First thing I thought was, “Is this the ‘Divine Comedy’ Dante?”

    Didn’t know he could also melt the ladies’ heart with his words. He is not called “Il Sommo Poeta”(The Supreme Poet) for nothing.
