Che quel, ch’Ť; sopra di noi, non appartiene a noi.

That which is above us is no business of ours.

Legato con saldissima catena
Sopra Caucaso ogn’hor Prometheo giace;
Ove gli rode con eterna pena
Il cuor mai sempre un’Aquila rapace.
Cosi d’alti pensier la mente piena
Suol esser resa senza haver mai pace
Di chi di saper troppo arde in desio
Siocco; e di riguardar nel seno a Dio.
