tetrastichon.

Marte regente venit moderatis passibus aetas,
A vero nomen quae capit illa viro,
Haec aliis praeesse cupit, vincensque triumphos
Expetit, atque annis incipit esse gravis.

The time of gentle steps comes under the sign of Mars: she takes her name from the one who is truly a man. She wishes to stand above others and conquer; she seeks out triumphs, and begins to be heavy with the years.

quatrain.

Mars suyt apres, qui tient virilité,
Aage qui veult sur autres dominer:
L’esprit pour lors croist en subtilité,
Le corps aussi commence à decliner.
