The Gate of Hell

The Gate of Hell, from The Inferno by Dante Alighieri

I am the way into the city of woe.I am the way to a forsaken people.I am the way to eternal sorrow.

Sacred justice moved my architect.I was raised here by divine omnipotence,Primordial love and ultimate intelligence.

Only those elements time cannot wear Were made before me, and beyond time I stand.Abandon all hope ye who enter here.
