Sonnet 1 ( Italian)

Beyond realm void of human hue

Exists a celestial sky of light and dark

Sacred Mortalities daily must embark

Thus all carnal callings long subdue

Covetous yearnings disappear from view

Lobes caressed by melodious lark

Preceding rewards of Angelic Orators hark

The damned of Spirits gone eschew

Lament arrogance of self-exaltation

Above place One Holy hath prepared

Needle’s eye narrows for Souls spared

Sadly most descend into punitive revelation

Earthly deeds espouse how little Souls cared

Spirits beg eternal home in celestial constellation
