ALIA POEMATA LATINA

In Obitum Henrici Principis Walliae.

ITe leues (inquam), Parnassia numina, Musae,
Non ego vos posthâc hederae velatus amictu
Somnis (nescio queis) nocturna ad vota vocabo:
Sed nec Cyrrhaei saltus Libethria'ue arua
In mea dicta ruant; non tam mihi pendula mens est, 5 Sic quasi Dijs certem, magnos accersere montes:
Nec vaga de summo deducam flumina monte,
Qualia parturiente colunt sub rupe sorores:
Si-quas mens agitet moles (dum pectora saeuo
Tota stupent luctu) lachrymísque exaestuet aequis 10 Spiritus, hi mihi iam montes, haec flumina sunto.
Musa, vale, ∦ tu Phoebe; dolor mea carmina dictet;
Hinc mihi principium: vos o labentia mentis
Lumina, nutantes paulatim acquirite vires,
Viuite, dum mortem ostendam: sic tempora vestram 15 Non comedant famam, sic nulla obliuia potent.
Quare age, Mens, effare, precor, quo numine laeso?
Quae suberant causae? quid nos committere tantum,
Quod non Lanigerae pecudes, non Agmina lustrent?
Annon longa fames miseraéque iniuria pestis 20 Poena minor fuerat, quàm fatum Principis aegrum?
lam foelix Philomela, ∦ menti conscia Dido!
Foelices, quos bella premunt, ∦ plurimus ensis!
Non metuunt vltrà; nostra infortunia tantùm
Fatáque Fortuna'sque ∦ spem laesêre futuram. 25 Quòd si fata illi longam invidêre salutem
Et patrio regno (sub quo iam Principe nobis
Quid sperare, imò quid non sperare licebat?)
Debuit ista pati prima ∦ non nobilis aetas:
Aut cita mors est danda bonis aut longa senectus: 30 Sic lactare animos ∦ sic ostendere gemmam
Excitat optatus auidos, ∦ ventilat ignem.
