    It is an absurdity that Dante is rated the 207th most notable poet. He is a part of the top 3. (Report)Reply

    this is another Sonnet, by Dante - it is not the Italian text of 'Beauty Of Her Face'

    Guido, i' vorrei che tu e Lapo ed io
    fossimo presi per incantamento,
    e messi in un vasel, ch'ad ogni vento
    per mare andasse al voler vostro e mio;
    sì che fortuna od altro tempio rio
    non ci potesse dare impedimento,
    anzi, vivendo sempre in un talento,
    di stare insieme crescesse 'l disio.
    E monna Vanna e monna Lagia poi,
    con quella ch'è sul numer de le trenta,
    con noi ponesse il buono incantatore:
    e quivi ragionar sempre d'amore,
    e ciascuna di lor fosse contenta,
    sì come i' credo che saremmo noi.

    (Dante Alighieri)

    Guido is GUIDO CAVALCANTI, an Italian poet and -probably- Dante's best friend.

    ......pure acts of kindness, beauty, gentleness, and grace are of the gods..
    ..I feel it's impossible for any one human to obtain these qualities of greatness
    and sustain them permanently...if this were possible they would be perfect..
    still this is a beautiful write ★

    Beauty. The standard of physical beauty has changed through the centuries. There was a time that over-weight women were eulogized for the bounty of their curves. Women in the 70's thought Twiggy was the ultimate beauty, thin as a wisp as she was. Beauty of character and personality is what we should praise and seek out above all others. (Report)Reply

    Than all; but hers, through her, are raised above.
    From all her acts such lovely graces flow
    That truly one may never think of her
    Without a passion of exceeding love.

    Beauty par excellence that commands adoration and love without any trace of envy or hatred. Excellent poem marvelously penned. Thanks for sharing. (Report)Reply
