My gracious ballad, when it please you, go, win yourself honor when the time is ripe. Ballata, i' voi che tu ritrovi Amore, e con lui vade a madonna davante, sl che la scusa mia, la qual tu cante, ragioni poi con lei 10 mio segnore. Tu vai, ballata, sl cortesemente, che sanza compagnia dovresti avere in tutte parti ardire; ma se tu vuoli andar sicuramente, retrova l'Amor pria, cM forse non ebon sanza lui gire; pero che quella che ti dee audire, SI com'io credo, ever di me adirata: se tu di lui non fossi accompagnata, leggeramente ti faria dimore.

This is again divided 36 Dante's Vita Nuova in two. First I speak of her eyes, which are the initiators of love; then I speak of her mouth, which is the supreme desire of my love. So that here and now any perverse thought may be dispelled, let him who reads this remember what has been previously said about this lady's greeting, which was an action of her mouth, and which was the goal of all my desires so long as I was allowed to receive it. Then when I say, My song, I know that you, I am adding a stanza as a sort of handmaiden to the others.

The first sonnet begins: 0 you who bear, and the other: Are you the one. o you who bear a look of resignation, moving with eyes downcast to show your grief, where are you coming from? Your coloring appears to be the hue of grief itself. Is it our gracious lady you have seen bathing with tears Love's image in her face? o ladies, tell me what my heart tells me: I see her grace in every step you take. And if you come from so profound a grief, may it please you to stay with me awhile and tell me truly what you know of her.
