  • Guido, I wish that you and Lapo and I
    Could be taken by magic and placed in a boat
    Where every rising swell
    Would sweep us at our will across the sky

    Then tempest never, or weather dire
    Could ever make our blissful living cease
    No, but abiding in a steady, blessed peace
    Together in harmony

    And Lady Vanna and Lagia then
    She who looms the thirty best
    Would join us at the enchanter's behest

    And there we'd talk of love without an end
    To make those ladies happy in the sky
    With Lapo enchanted too, and you and I
