So sweetly shines reveal'd

The am Vous thought within your soul which dwells, That other joys it from my heart expels:

Hence I aspire to frame

Lays whereon hope may build a deathless name,
When in the tomb my dust shall lie conceal'd.
At your approach anguish, and sorrow fly;
These as your beams retire again draw nigh:
Yet outward acts their influence ne'er betray;

For doting memory
Dwells on the past, and chases them away.

Whatever then of worth
My genius ripens owes to you its birth:
To you all honour, and all praise is due;
Myself a barren soil, and cultur'd but by you.

Canzon, tu non m' acquêt i, arizi ni infiammi A dir di quel cK a me stesso m'invola: Perà sia certa di non esser sola.

Thy strains, О song! appease me not, but fire;
Chanting a theme that wings my wild desire:
Trust me, thou shalt ere long a sister song acquire.

SONETTO XIII.

giunse a Simon I' alto concetto
CK a mio nome gli pose in man lo stile;
S' avesse dato all opera gentгle
Con la ßgura voce, ed intettetto;

Di sospir molti mi sgombrava il petto:
Che cid cK altri han più caro, a me Jan vile.
Perd che 'n vista ella si mostra unale,
Promettendomi pace neW aspetto.

Ma poг cK ï vengo a ragionar con lei;
Benignamente assai par che m'ascolte;
Se risponder savesse a detti mm.

Pigmalion, quanto lodar ti dei
Delf immagine tua, se mille volte
N' avesti quel, cK ï sot una vorrei!

SONNET XIII.

\vhen Simon at my wish the proud design
Conceiv'd, which in his hand the pencil plac'd,
Had he, while loveliness his picture grac'd,
But added speech, and mind to charms divine;

What sighs he then had spar'd this breast of mine:
That bliss had giv'n to higher bliss distaste:
For, when such meekness in her look was trac'd,
'Twould seem she soon to kindness might incline.

But, urging converse with the portray'd fair,
Methinks she deigns attention to my pray'r,
Though wanting to reply the pow'r of voice.

What praise thyself, Pygmalion, hast thou gain'd;
Forming that image, whence thou hast obtain'd
A thousand times what, once obtain'd, would me rejoice!
