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.


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]).
