Dark Wood: Canto I

Midway this way of life we're bound upon, I woke to find myself in a dark wood, where the right road was wholly lost and gone...How I got into it I cannot say, because I was so heavy and full of sleep when I first stumbled from the narrow way; but when at last I stood beneath a steep Hill's side, which closed that valley's wandering maze whose dread had pierced me to the heart-root deep, then I looked up , and saw the morning rays mantle its shoulder from that planet bright which guides men's feet aright on all their ways.
