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
that's the book of love where the heart cultivate everything for the beloved and lover
“In that book which is my memory,
On the first page of the chapter that is the day when I first met you,
Appear the words, ‘Here begins a new life’.”
― Dante Alighieri, Vita Nuova
''Vita Nova'', (published in 1295, that is 5 years after Beatrice's death -1290)
'' Io mi senti' svegliar dentro a lo core
Un spirito amoroso che dormia:
E poi vidi venir da lungi Amore
Allegro sì, che appena il conoscia,
Dicendo: Or pensa pur di farmi onore;
E 'n ciascuna parola sua ridia.
E poco stando meco il mio segnore,
Guardando in quella parte onde venia,
Io vidi monna Vanna e monna Bice
Venire inver lo loco là 'v'io era,
L'una appresso de l'altra miriviglia;
E sì come la mente mi ridice,
Amor mi disse: Quell'è Primavera,
E quell'ha nome Amor, sì mi somiglia.
I felt awoken in my heart
a loving spirit that was sleeping;
and then I saw Love coming from far away
so glad, I could just recognize.
saying you think you can honor me,
and with each word laughing.
And little being with me my lord,
watching the way it came from,
I saw lady Joan and lady Bice
coming towards the spot I was at,
one wonder past another wonder.
And as my mind keeps telling me,
Love said to me She is Spring who springs first,
and that bears the name Love, who resembles me.
('' Vita Nova'', chapter XXIV)
I like this one. Isn't this a poem that he wrote after he met Beatrice?
