‘As a bird amongst the leaves on a tree watches with yearning desire over her sweet little ones and waits impatiently for the dawn so that she might feed them, so my lady, stock still and rapt with attention, stood turned towards the coming of the divine light…’ (Paradiso XXIII i-x).  Dante says it all.
