VIS AMORIS.

Love’s might

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

The winged god has broken the winged thunderbolt, showing that there is a fire more powerful than fire - and that is Love.

La Mariée au contagieux.

Apostrophe.

Dieu doint aulx bons mieulx qu’a toy (O Mezence[1]),
Qui achepté has gendre à grand despense:
Vieulx, verollé, villain, plein d’impropere,
Qu’est ce aultre chose (Or me dy cruel pere)

Renouvellant du Duc Touscan les faictz.[2]

Mezence Duc de Touscane par inhumai-
ne cruaulté, faisoit lyer les hommes vifz a-
vec les corps morts & puans, & la languir
jusque à la mort, tellement que le mort
tuoit le vif. Laquelle inhumanite encore au
jourdhuy exercent plusieurs peres, meres,
& parens, qui marient inseparablement leurs
filles belles, saines, & entieres, à gens verol-
léz, corrompuz, ladres, puans, podagres, &
vivants charoignes, sans povoir, ne espoir
de se separer, mais à necessité de la lan-
guir jusqu’à la mort. De laquelle cruaulté
des Peres & Meres envers leurs enfans: n’en
est point de plus grande, toutesfois dequoy
on tienne moins de compte. Sur quoy Era-
sme
ha faict le beau Dialogue.
ΑΓΑΜΟΣ ΓΑΜΟΣ.
