EMBLEMA CXCVI [=195] .

In mortem praeproperam.

Untimely death

Qui teneras forma allexit, torsitque puellas,
Pulchrior & tota nobilis urbe puer,
Occidit ante diem, nulli mage flendus (Aresti)
Quam tibi, cui casto iunctus amore fuit.
Ergo illi tumulum tanti monumenta doloris
Astruis: & querulis vocibus astra feris.
Me sine abis dilecte? neque amplius ibimus una?
Nec mecum in studiis ocia grata teres?
Sed te terra teget, sed fati, Gorgonis ora,
Delphinesque tui signa dolenda dabunt.

That handsome lad, famed throughout all the city, who attracted and tormented tender-hearted girls with his beauty, has perished before his time, mourned by no one more than you, Arestius, to whom he was joined in chaste affection. Therefore you build him a tomb as a memorial of such great love and assail the heavens with cries of grief: Beloved, are you gone away without me? Shall we never be together again? Will you never again spend happy leisure hours with me in study? But the earth will cover you, a Gorgon’s head and dolphins shall provide doleful symbols of your fate.

Das CXCVI [=195] .

Vom unzeitigem Tod.

Kein schöner Knab in der Statt war
Dann dieser Edel Jüngling zwar
Mit seiner gstalt er reitzt, lockt, zwang
Die zartn Jungfrauwn, und macht in bang
Der ist gestorben vor der zeit
Keim aber mehr zu trauwrn geit
Dann dir lieblich, der du warst je
Sein aller bester freund allhie
Derhalben du im ein grabmal
Zu eim denckzeichn deins leids und qual
Auffrichst, und laß dein klag und gschrey
Biß in Himmel erschalln dabey

Werden wir nimmer han gut stell
Mit ein andr, und hat ein end schon?
All unser kurtzweil freud und won?
Dich soll das Erdreich decken wol
Abr deins Tödlichen fals sein soll
Gorgonis haupt und die Delphin
Ein zeugnuß, und thun klagen in.
