Text heard on Sample:
bollia là giuso una pegola spessa,
che ’nviscava la ripa d’ogne parte.
I’ vedea lei, ma non vedëa in essa
mai che le bolle che ’l bollor levava,
e gonfiar tutta, e riseder compressa.

e vidi dietro a noi un diavol nero
correndo su per lo scoglio venire.
Ahi quant’ elli era ne l’aspetto fero!
e quanto mi parea ne l’atto acerbo,
con l’ali aperte e sovra i piè leggero!

‘Vada Malacoda!’

I’ m’accostai con tutta la persona
lungo ‘l mio duca, e non torceva li occhi
da la sembianza lor ch’era non buona.
(Dante)
