Nec finit Ambitio nitidum clarefcere folem, 
Fufcat & ingenuas Idalii igne faces. 
Heu, quoties[ubit illius mihi nodis mago, 
Nm animo toties ingruit atra meo! 
Sors oculis nofiris melior, quibus ordine certo, 
Alternas reparant lunaque fdlque vices! 
Nam quid agat ratio, quid agat ftudiofa voluntas, 
Quas habet, vt geminos mens peregrina duces ? 
Maior, habere oculos, dolor eji, vbi non datur vti> 
Quam, quibus vtaris, non habuijfe oculos» 
Qui dolet opprejfus lapfis velocius vmbris 
Latior aggreditur mane viator iter. 
Sed nimis hac longas tenebris nox prorogat horas, 
Qua tibi mane negat cedere i Phcebe, diem. 
Cum redit Arttoo Titan vicinior axi, 
Exultat reducis quifqut videre iubar. 
Scilicet Aurora gens vertitur omnis in ortus, 
Quifque parat pi imus dicere, Phoebus adef . 
Sic ego, [ape oculos tenui fublimis Olympo, 
Ajpiciens, gemino qui iacet orbe, Polum. 
Et dixi tam fapi- Nitefcc ,nitefcemeus Sol! 
Sol mihi tam longos obtenebrate diesJ 
Exorere, exorere, & medios[altem exere vultus, 
Vel fcintilla tui fola fatejfepottft. 
Quin etiam tanti fi luminis abnuis vfum , 
Sufficiet radios expetiifle tuos.
