Vis Amoris.

Love’s might


Aligerum fulmen fregit Deus aliger, igne
Dum demonstrat uti est fortior ignis Amor.[1]

Force d’Amour.


Le feu d’Amour vainct la tempeste,
Il n’est feu qui tant d’ardeur face.
Car quand quelqu’ng l’a en la teste,
Il ard au cueur, et en la face.
Jupiter, qui la fouldre brasse,
N’en fait point de telle vigueur:
Voire, si luy mesmes l’embrasse,
Il s’en brusle, & souffre langueur.
