For better waters now..

The beautiful opening of Purgatory:

For better waters, now, the little bark
of my poetic powers hoists its sails,
and leaves behind chat cruelest of the seas.

And I shall sing about that second realm
where man’s soul goes to purify itself
and become worthy to ascend to Heaven.
