WE ARE HAPPY HERE

***

Moon is lowest sphere

We want only what we have

We are happy here

***

NOTE: Piccarda Donati appears to Dante on the Moon, the sphere closest to the Earth. Dante asks if she wants to be on a highest sphere, but she replies that the souls in Paradise are all perfectly happy, no matter on which sphere they will appear to Dante. God’s will and the saved souls’ will are perfectly aligned.
