Florence

Con queste genti, e con altre con esse,
vid’ io Fiorenza in sì fatto riposo,
che non avea cagione onde piangesse.

With all these families, and others with them,
Florence beheld I in so great repose,
That no occasion had she whence to weep;

Dante. Paradiso, XVI (Translation by Longfellow)
