"In what ideal world or part of heaven

Did Nature find the model of that face

And form, so fraught with loveliness and grace

In which, to our creation, she has given

Her prime proof of creative power above?

What fountain nymph or goddess ever let

Such lovely tresses float of gold refined

Upon the breeze, or in a single mind,

Where have so many virtues ever met,

E'en though those charms have slain my bosom's weal

He knows not love who has not seen her eyes

Turn when she sweetly speaks, or smiles, or sighs,

Or how the power of love can hurt or heal."

 

- Petrarch
