tetrastichon.

Est gravis iste senex, sed laetus Iuppiter, ambos
Allicit & iungit docta Minerva simul:
Tristia qui miscet laetis, & gaudia luctu
Temperat, hic Pylii secula Regis aget.[1]

That old man before you is grave, but Jupiter smiles; and wise Minerva binds them both together. He who mixes sadness with joy, and grief with happiness will reach the age of the Pylian king.

quatrain.

Saturne dueil, Juppiter joye meyne:
Pallas les deux tempere sagement:
Qui démesler tous les deux prendra peine,
Comme Nestor il vivra longuement.

Notes:

1.  The ‘Pylian king’: Nestor, who saw three generations into the grave.
