tetrastichon.

Sydereo plures caelo lucescere Soles
Ut natura negat, sitque putare nefas:
Sic plures numerare Deos, & numina plura
Audebit nullus, sit nisi mentis inops.

As nature forbids several suns to shine in the sky, and even to think so is a sin, so no one will dare count several gods and several powers unless he’s bereft of his senses.

quatrain.

Croire que soyent plusieurs soleilz aux cieux,
Est chose estrange, & trop déraisonnable:
Semblablement, de croire plusieurs Dieux,
Est heresie, & chose détestable.
