Aiuto perpetuo.

Everlasting help.


Di duo perigli il buono e fido scudo
Serbato m’ha: di l’un mentr’era a fronte
E combattea col mio nemico crudo,
C’havrià; potuto uccider Rodomonte:[1]
L’altro, ch’in mar sendo sommerso e spinto,
Portommi al lido, ond’ho la morte vinto.

Notes:

1.  Rodomonte is the felon par excellence. Here the sense is that a shield helped defeat an enemy so strong that he could have killed even Rodomonte.

In colui, che perisce per la crudeltà de suoi.

On one who perishes through the cruelty of his own people.


Me povero Delphin gettò nel lido
Il tempestoso mar de l’onde fuore
Per dimostrar, quanto è dannoso e infido,
Quando’l move de venti empio furore.
Ma se Nettuno non perdono a suoi,
Mal Navigante assicurar ti puoi.
