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..

Che si dee rimover l’Ignoranza.

Ignorance must be done away with.


Che Mostro questo? Sphinge perche serba.
Faccia di donna, e le sue membra veste
Piume d’augello, e di Leone ha i piede?
Dinota l’ignoranza, che procede
Da tre cagioni; o da intellecto lieve,
O da vaghezza d’i piacer mondani,
O da Superbia, che virtu corrompe.
Ma l’huom, che sa perch’egli nato, a questa
S’oppone; e vincitor felice vive.
