tetrastichon.

Qui puer antè fuit, crescens adolescit in annos:
Quos sibi iure suo vendicat alma Venus:
Tunc genius flagrat, tunc semine corpora turgent,
Et furit in vegeto corpore iugis amor.

He who was once a boy has grown into an adolescent - the years that nurturing Venus claims as her own by right. Then the personality is inflamed, the body is ripe to bursting with seed, and love rages constant in the lively body.

quatrain.

Lenfant croissant vient en adolescence,
Lequel Venus la Déesse conduit:
Lors le sang bouilt, & lors croist la semence,
Qui le rend prompt à l’amoureux deduit.
