SCIENZA.

Learning.


Che la Musica amata da gli Iddii.

Music is loved by the Gods.


L’arguta Cetra col nemico a prova
Sonava Elpino;[1] e mentre al suono intento,
Di saventura inusitata e nova
Ruppe una corda, onde fini il concento.
Ma in quel difetto una Cicala giova,
Ch’a la corda suppli con dolce accento.
Ond’ei di bronzo una Cicala dona.
A Phebo, accio di lei sia la corona.

Notes:

1. Elpino is a stock pastoral character who sometimes plays the lute..

Insegna de Poeti.

Insignia of Poets.


Chi per insegna di sua gente pone
L’uccel, che rap in Ida Ganimede.
Chi prende il fiero Serpe, e chi’l Leone,
E chi Animal, che pi leggiadro vede,
Al Poeta lodato con ragione
E a i dotti e rari il Cigno si conviene,
Ch’; sacro a Phebo, e gi fu Re, & anchora.
Serba gliantichi progi, ond’altri honora.
