Excerpt

Poscia ch'io fui all'altro colle giunto,
155 vidi Filena lá dal fiumicello,

di cui l'Amor m'avea il cor trapunto.

Di fiori adorno avea lo capo bello;
e perché il fiume correa giuso al basso,
però discesi ed appressaime ad ello.

160 Quando per gire a lei io movea il passo

per entro il fiume, udii sonare un corno,
il qual mi tolse allora ogni mio spasso.

Filena disse:--La dea fa ritorno;
oimè, fuggi via tosto;--e poi levosse
165 i fior, de' quali il capo avea adorno.

Ed incontra alle ninfe ella si mosse,
le qua' tornavan liete con le prede;
ed indi anche Cupido me rimosse,

dicendo a me:--Se Diana ti vede,
170 come Acteon, quando da lei fu visto,

trasmutar ti fará da capo a piede.--
p. 14

di quel che piú desia, e viengli invano,

175 E lagrimando ingavicchiai la mano,

Author of the Day

Julie Anne Nelson
When Julie Anne Nelson isn't working as a technical editor, she loves to live out her passion for young adult fiction through her writing. Her wildly popular The Sevens series was inspired by a Percy Shelley poem and, as our author of the day, she tells us all about it. Nelson also talks about her writing habits, her tendency to sneak extra books in between writing/editing the main series and how her teaching career inspired her to write for young adults.
