La Moçedad.

Ottava rhima.[1]

De Juppiter entrambos engendrados,
Entrambos tiernos y sin barba alguna,[2]
De Semele y Latona hijos preçiados.
En hora buena esteys, y à mi fortuna
De vuestra moçedad en mis cansados
Miembros, prestad de tantas partes una.
Tu con manjar, tu con vino me cura,
Por que se tarde mas la vejez dura.

Notes:

1.  This edition uses a woodcut not used in the French editions of 1549. See the French emblem 93 ([FALb093]).

2.  Apollo (son of Latona) and Dionysus (son of Semele), gods of healing and of wine. Beautiful and ever young, they were often linked, e.g. Ovid, Metamorphoses, 3.421; 4.18; Epistulae (Heroides), 1.14.31. For Dionysus (Bacchus), see Emblem 67 ([A49a067]).
