Book: "INFERNO OF DANTE" a new verse translation by ROBERT PINSKY
"Your image--dear, fatherly benevolent--
Being fixed inside my memory, has imbued
My heart: when in the fair world, hour by hour
You taught me, patiently, it was you who showed
The way man makes himself eternal; therefore,
The gratitude I feel toward you makes fit
That while I live, I should declare it here."
I tag Kari, Mary, Sherrie, Sherie, and Larry... I mean... how 'bout Jenn
