La Vita Nuova

Rating: 3.6
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

''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?
