XXVI Sonetto by Dante Alighieri (From "Vita Nova")

Tanto gentile e tanto onesta pare
la donna mia quand’ella altrui saluta,
ch’ogne lingua deven tremando muta,
4e li occhi no l’ardiscon di guardare.

Ella si va, sentendosi laudare,
benignamente d’umiltà vestuta;
e par che sia una cosa venuta
8da cielo in terra a miracol mostrare.

Mostrasi sì piacente a chi la mira,
che dà per li occhi una dolcezza al core,
11che ’ntender no la può chi no la prova:

e par che de la sua labbia si mova
un spirito soave pien d’amore,
14che va dicendo a l’anima: sospira
Google translation

So kind and so honest it seems
my woman when she greets others,
that the tongue deven trembling dumb,
4e eyes no the ardiscon of looking.

She goes, feeling to be disappointed,
kindly humbly dressed;
and it seems like something has come
8from heaven on earth to show miracles.

Show yourself so pleased to those who aim it,
which gives the eyes a sweetness to the heart,
11that is not the proof of the proof:

and it seems that his labbia is changed
a sweet spirit full of love,
He goes on telling the soul: he sighs
