In Iuventam.

On youth

Natus uterque Iovis tener, atque imberbis uterque,
Quem Latona tulit, quem tulit & Semele,[1]
Salvete, aeterna simul & florete iuventa,
Numine sit vestro quae diuturna mihi.
Tu vino curas, tu victu dilue morbos,
Ut lento accedat sera senecta pede.

Sons of Jove, each of you, each of you tender and beardless, one born of Latona, one of Semele, hail! Be glorious together in your everlasting youth, and may youth by your divine assent last long for me. You wash away my cares with wine, and you dissolve my bodily ills with [disciplined] living, that old age may approach late and with slow footsteps.

Notes:

1.  Apollo (son of Latona) and Dionysus (son of Semele), gods of healing and of wine. Beautiful and ever young, they were often linked, e.g. Ovid, Metamorphoses, 3.421; 4.18; Epistulae (Heroides), 1.14.31.

Sur Jeunesse.

APOSTROPHE.

Salut ą vous Bacchus aussi Phoebus
De Jupiter les enfans non barbuz.[1]
Salut, & fleur de Jeunesse aeternelle,
Octroyez moy de tousjours estre en elle.
Bacchus par vin de soucy me delivre,
Phoebus de mal par temperamment vivre.

Phoebus est inventeur de Medicine, Bacchus du vin.
Soucy, & exces avancent la vieillesse. Diaite (partie
de Medicine) oste lexces, le vin oste le soucy. Par
ainsi Le vin prins temperamment, entretient jeunesse.
