tetrastichon.

Nunc licèt instantis timeam conamina Parcae,
Et brevis incertos terminet hora dies.
Quid tum? quo noceat cineri Fortuna sepulto,
Nihil habet, à tumulo livor & omnis abit.

Now I can rightly fear the attack of the threatening Parcae [Fates], and a swift hour finishes my uncertain days. What then? Fortune has no way to harm ashes once interred, and all envy departs from the grave.

quatrain

Puis que la Loy de Nature est commune:
Et que mourir à tous il est conclus:
J’ay un confort, cest que Envie et Fortune
Ne me pourront apres mort nuyre plus.
