Cur puerum Mors ausa dolis es carpere Amorem?
Tela tua ut iaceret: dum propria esse putat.

Death, why did you so audaciously and with evil intent steal from the boy Love? - So that he might shoot your weapons, thinking them his own?

Das CXCV [=194] .

Von einer schönen Jungfrauw die
durch Tod abgieng.

O Tod warumb hast betrogn mit list
Den Knaben dLieb daß er zur frist
Auß seinem Köcher scheußt in eil
Dein tödtlich Gschoß für seine Pfeil.
