Strozzi, Giovan Battista: Michelangelo’s Night (Notte di Michelangelo in English)

Portre of Strozzi, Giovan Battista

Notte di Michelangelo (Italian)

La Notte, che tu vedi in sì dolci atti

Dormir, fu da un Angelo scolpita

In questo sasso, e perché dorme ha vita:

Destala se nol credi, e parleratti.

Michelangelo’s Night (English)

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.
