tetrastichon.

Sub Iove post alias graditur iam cruda senectus,[1]
Civilis vitae munera ferre potens.
Humani varios cursus experta labores,
Consilio pollens, vi minus illa valet.

Souz Jupiter vient en ordre viellesse,
Habille encore aux civiles honneurs:
Le sens pour lors est muny de sagesse,
Mais le corps perd ses forces et vigueurs.

Notes:

1. а‘tough old age’: a Vergilian tag; see Aeneid, 6.304.
