In the middle of the journey of our life,
I came to myself, in a dark
wood,
where the direct way was
lost.

It is a hard thing to speak of,

how wild, harsh and impenetrable that wood was,
so that thinking of it
recreates the fear.

It is scarcely less
bitter than death:
but, in order to tell
of the good that I found there,
I
must tell of the other things I saw there.
