In formosam fato praereptam.[1]

On a beautiful woman, dead before her time

Cur puerum Mors ausa dolis es carpere Amorem?
Tela tua ut iaceret, dum propria esse putat.

Death, why did you so audaciously and with evil intent steal from the boy Love? - So that he might shoot your weapons, thinking them his own

Notes:

1.  The iconography of the emblems ‘De morte et amore’ and ‘In formosam fato praereptam’ is confused in many editions.
