35 36 INFERNO Or movi, e con la tua parola ornata e con cio c'ha mestieri al suo campare, 69 l'aiuta si ch'i' ne sia consolata. I' son Beatrice che ti faccio andare; vegno de! loco ove tornar disio ; n amor mi mosse, che mi fa parlare. " 1s Tacette allora, e poi comincia' io : "O donna di virtu sola per cui l'umana spezie eccede ogne contento 78 di quel ciel c'ha minor Ii cerchi sui, tanto m'aggrada ii tuo comandamento, che l'ubidir, se gia fosse, m'e tardi; 81 piu non t'e uo' ch'aprirmi ii tuo talento.

La bufera infernal, che mai non resta, mena Ii spirti con la sua rapina ; voltando e percotendo Ii molesta. Quando giungon davanti a la ruina, quivi le strida, ii compianto, ii lamento; bestemmian quivi la virtu divina. lntesi ch'a cosf fatto tormento enno dannati i peccator carnali, che la ragion sommettono al talento.

Di quel che udire e che parlar vi piace, noi udiremo e parleremo a voi, % mentre che 'I vento, come fa, ci tace.

Amor, ch'a nullo amato amar perdona, mi prese de! costui piacer sf forte, 1os che, come vedi, ancor non m'abbandona. ENFER V 67-105 Tu vois Paris, Tristan »; ainsi ii m'en montra et m'en designa du doigt plus de mille 69 qu'amour ota de notre vie.
