Ballade To Our Lady

Rating: 3.0

WRITTEN FOR HIS MOTHER

Dame du ciel, regents terrienne,
Emperiere des infemaux palus....

Lady of Heaven and earth, and therewithal
Crowned Empress of the nether clefts of Hell,—

I, thy poor Christian, on thy name do call,
Commending me to thee, with thee to dwell,

Albeit in nought I be commendable.

Dante is his translator? I think I prefer the other translator of his poetry. This poem has the roughness of Dante's Inferno instead of Villon's smooth flow in the poems I have read so far..
