tetrastichon.

Hoc latuit puteo iam filia Temporis alma,
Quam patri ridens indicat ille senex:[1]
Vera diu latitant, sed longo temporis usu
Emergunt tandem, quae latuere priùs.

The kind daughter of Time has long lain hidden in this well; this old man, laughing, points her out to her father. The truth which was previously hidden remains hidden for a long time, but after a long time emerges.

quatrain.

Le Temps cherchoit sa fille Verité,
Qui se cachoit pour n’avoir grandz appuys,
Democritus homme d’authorité
La luy montra cachée dans un puys.

Notes:

1.  ‘This old man’, Democritus (as in the French): philosopher known for laughter and cheerfulness as a goal.
