O Happy Dead!

[ source ]

"O happy dead! O spirits elect already!"
Virgilius made beginning, "by that peace
Which I believe is waiting for you all,

Tell us upon what side the mountain slopes,
So that the going up be possible,
For to lose time irks him most who most knows."

Dante, The Divine Comedy, Purgatorio: Canto III
