  • 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
