Available translation(s): ENG
Nova angeletta sovra l'ale accorta
scese dal cielo in su la fresca riva,
là 'nd'io passava sol per mio destino.

Poi che senza compagna et senza scorta
5mi vide, un laccio che di seta ordiva
tese fra l'erba, ond'è verde il camino.

Allor fui preso; et non mi spiacque poi,
sí dolce lume uscia degli occhi suoi.
