Unformatted text preview: H EAVEN OF THE S UN The marriage theme 1 I N THE H EAVEN OF THE S UN 2 souls appear as suns, whirling like stars around fixed poles Poi, sì cantando, quelli ardenti soli si fuor girati intorno a noi tre volte, come stelle vicine a’ fermi poli (10.76-78) I N THE H EAVEN OF THE S UN E moto a moto e canto a canto colse And took motion from its motion and song to song, song that in those sweet pipes, our sirens... (12.7) 3 I N THE H EAVEN OF THE S UN As two bows, parallel and like in color… (12.10f) 4 TWO CIRCLES, TWO ‘SCHOOLS’ The holy millstone began to turn, and it had not completed the circle before another enclosed it and took motion from its motion and song from its song (12.1-6) As through a tenuous cloud two arcs curve parallel and colored alike, when Juno commands her handmaid, the outer born from the inner one (12.10-18) Two garlands of those sempiternal roses turned about us, and so the outer replied to the inner one. (12.19-21 Dancing with rivals (Siger of Brabant) Two motions of the heavens Symmetrical, opposite, 5 W HERE ONE MOTION STRIKES THE OTHER (10.9) 6 W HERE ONE MOTION STRIKES THE OTHER A CLOCK Then, like a clock that calls us in the hour when the bride of God rises to sing a dawn song to the Bridegroom, that he may love her, ( Par 10.139-141) 7 TWO MOTIONS, TWO WHEELS: A CLOCK; ALSO EROTIC.
