tetrastichon.

Aspera nudat hyems terras, ver vestit, & ornat,
Quae Boreas aufert, restituit Zephyrus:[1]
Ast homini veniat si tandem curva senectus,
Omnis honos formae (non rediturus) abit.

Hard winter denudes the fields; Spring dresses and clothes them; what Boreas takes, Zephyrus restores: but if bent age comes finally to a man, all his beauty’s honour departs, never to return.

quatrain.

L’hyver despoille, & ver les champs vestist:
Zephyrus rend de Boreas la perte:
Quand la beauté viellesse aneantist,
Elle se perd sans estre recouverte.

Notes:

1.  As in the previous emblem, Boreas is the North Wind, and Zephyrus the West Wind.
