tetrastichon.

Mane rosam carpis primo, quae vespere marcet:
Hinc est una dies ortus & interitus:
Florida sic subitò praetervolat ipsa iuventus,
Quae modò tensa fuit, fit modò laxa cutis.

In the early morning you pluck a rose that evening withers: one day, therefore, is birth and death for it. So youth herself flies past us swiftly; and skin that once was taut goes flabby.

quatrain.

La rose est fresche et fletrie en un jour,
Sa grand beauté est en bref temps perdue:
Viellesse aussi sans faire long sejour,
Ride la peau (au paravant) tendue.
