Excerpt from book:
Section 3THE GATE OF HELL. 47 Seeing that in the Court of Heaven thy part Is ta'en by three such Ladies benedite : Such promise too, of good my words impart." E'en as the flowers, by the cold of night, Are bowed and closed, but, whitened by the sun, All lift them, open, on their stems upright, Such I became, with forces all outrun.; And so much courage then my heart possessed That I began, like one to boldness won : "O she, compassionate, that aided best !

These words I saw in colouring obscure, Upon the summit of a portal writ: " Master," said I, " their sense is hard to secure."
