Sur Jeunesse.

APOSTROPHE.

Salut ą vous Bacchus aussi Phoebus
De Jupiter les enfans non barbuz.[1]
Salut, & fleur de Jeunesse aeternelle,
Octroyez moy de tousjours estre en elle.
Bacchus par vin de soucy me delivre,
Phoebus de mal par temperamment vivre.

Phoebus est inventeur de Medicine, Bacchus du vin.
Soucy, & exces avancent la vieillesse. Diaite (partie
de Medicine) oste lexces, le vin oste le soucy. Par
ainsi Le vin prins temperamment, entretient jeunesse.

Notes:

1.  Apollo and Dionysus, 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 25 ([FALb025]).
