Reason

…Finally, what is Reason ? You have often asked me; and this is my answer:–

     Whene’er the mist, that stands ‘twixt God and thee,
     Sublimates to a pure transparency,
     That intercepts no light and adds no stain–
     There Reason is, and then begins her reign!

     But alas!

     –`tu stesso, ti fai grosso
          Col falso immaginar, si che non vedi
          Cio che vedresti, se l’avessi scosso.

     [You yourself blind yourself
     With delusion’s dream, so you do not see
     What you’d see if you had shaken it off.]
