Una Figura De La Donna Mia/The Figure Of My Woman

Una figura de la donna

Mia s’ adora Guido, a

San Michele in Orto,

Che di bella sembianza,

Onesta e pia, de’ 

Peccatori e refugio 

E conforto: e quale

A lei divoto s’ umilia

Chi piu’ languisce,

Piu’ n’ ha di conforto:

Fl’ infermi sana, i

Demon caccia via,

E gli occhi orbati fa

Vedere scorto. Sana

In pubblico loco gran

Languori: con reverenza

La gente l’ inchina; due

Luminara l’ adornan di

Fuori: la voce va per

Lontane cammina; ma

Dicon, ch’ e’ idolatra,

I Fra Minori, per invidia,

Che non e lor vicina.

The figure of my

Woman adores Guido at

The church of San

Michele in Orto; her

Beautiful resemblance, honest and

Pious. To sinners she

Gives refuge and comfort: 

And likewise the humbly

Devoted. Whoever kneels before

Her are comforted: The

Infirm are healed, demons

Are thrown out, and

Those with crooked eyes

See straight. Healings in

Public, open spaces: With

Reverence the people kneel,

Two lamps adorn her

Outline. Her voice travels

Far and wide; but,

The minor friars say,

Idolatry. Envy, it’s not

Even their place.
