“To get back up to the shining world from there
My guide and I went into that hidden tunnel,


And Following its path, we took no care
To rest, but climbed: he first, then I — so far,
through a round aperture I saw appear


Some of the beautiful things that Heaven bears,
Where we came forth, and once more saw the stars.”


― Dante Alighieri, from Inferno Canto XXXIV, Robert Pinsky translation (1995)
