- La Notte, che tu vedi in sì dolci atti
Dormir, fu da un angelo scolpita
In questo sasso, e perchè dorme ha vita:
Destala, se nol credi, e parleratti
- Epigram for Michelangelo's "la Notte"
- Translation: Night in so sweet an attitude beheld Asleep, was by an angel sculptured In this stone; and sleeping, is alive; Waken her, doubter; she will speak to thee
