Five times rekindled, and as often quenched,
had been the light beneath the moon, since first
we entered on the passage of the deep,

when lo, a mountain loomed before us, dim
by reason of the distance, and so high
it seemed to me, that I had seen none such.

And we rejoiced; but soon our happiness
was turned to grief; for from the new-found land
a whirlwind rose, and smote our vessel’s prow;

three times it made her whirl with all the waters;
then at the fourth it made her stern go up,
and prow go down, even as Another pleased,

till over us the ocean’s waves had closed.”

INFERNO, Canto XXVI, vv. 130-142

Cinque volte racceso e tante casso
lo lume era di sotto da la luna,
poi che 'ntrati eravam ne l'alto passo,

quando n’apparve una montagna, bruna
per la distanza, e parvemi alta tanto
quanto veduta non avëa alcuna.

Noi ci allegrammo, e tosto tornò in pianto;
ché de la nova terra un turbo nacque
e percosse del legno il primo canto.

Tre volte il fé girar con tutte l’acque;
a la quarta levar la poppa in suso
e la prora ire in giù, com’altrui piacque,

infin che ’l mar fu sovra noi richiuso".

INFERNO, Canto XXVI, vv. 130-142
