From Krzysztof Kieślowski’s "La double vie de Véronique"



Dante, Paradiso, II, 1-9.

O voi che siete in piccioletta barca,  
desiderosi d'ascoltar, seguiti
dietro al mio legno che cantando varca,
[tornate a riveder li vostri liti:]  
Non vi mettete in pelago, ché forse,
perdendo me, rimarreste smarriti.
L'acqua ch'io prendo giá mai non si corse;
Minerva spira è conducemi Appollo,
è nove Muse mi dimostran l'Orse.

O you who are in your tiny boat,
eager to hear more, following
behind my ship that advances, singing,
[go back, if you are to see your shores again.]
Do not put yourselves to sea, for if
you lose me, you too will be forever lost.
The waters I travel have never yet been crossed;
Minerva breathes, and Apollo guides me,
it is the nine Muses who show me the North Star.
