These eyes of mine, desiring beautiful things,and their spirits wrapped up in their fitness,seek no other able vitality thanto ascend to the heaven that looks after them.From heights of the highest starsdescends one, united splendorto enlight what desire draws them to;and what is rightly called by the name of love.And so, for another of gentle heart,that can fall in love, and burn and tell himhis looks are there in the face that looks after him.Michelangelo Buonarroti
@MichaelS36 Thank you. This one I found really, really difficult. Michelangelo was a manneristic painter and sculptor, so it only follows his poetry should be too. And this one, it is...
Gli occhi miei vaghi delle cose belle,
E l'alma insieme della sua salute
Non hanno altra virtute
Ch'ascenda al ciel che rimirar in elle.
Dalle più alte stelle
Discende uno splendore,
Che'l desir tira a quelle;
E quel si chiama amore.
Ne d'altro ha gentil core,
Che lo innamori, & arda, e che'lconsigli
Ch'un volto che ne gli occhi lor simigli.
