La mamma Morta

Its another (all) night at Fabrica. Tonight, because the work am
here for is mostly clerical,
I have decided to let the voice the Great Maria Callas
sing me through the night.

Beauty- spirituality- perfection.

    OF BEAUTY AND DUTY

    by: Dante Alighieri (1265-1321)

    TWO ladies to the summit of my mind
    Have clomb, to hold an argument of love.
    The one has wisdom with her from above,
    For every noblest virtue well designed:
    The other, beauty’s tempting power refined
    And the high charm of perfect grace approve:
    And I, as my sweet Master’s will doth move,
    At feet of both their favors am reclined.
    Beauty and Duty in my soul keep strife,
    At question if the heart such course can take
    And ‘twixt the two ladies hold its love complete.
    The fount of gentle speech yields answer meet,
    That Beauty may be loved for gladness sake,
    And Duty in the lofty ends of life.

    “Of Beauty and Duty” was translated into English by D.G. Rossetti (1828-1882).
