Fortune plango vulnera
stillantibus ocellis
quod sua michi munera
subtrahit rebellis.
Verum est, quod legitur,
fronte capillata,
sed plerumque sequitur
Occasio calvata.

In Fortune solio
sederam elatus,
prosperitatis vario
flore coronatus;
quicquid enim florui
felix et beatus,
nunc a summo corrui
gloria privatus.

Fortune rota volvitur:
descendo minoratus;
alter in altum tollitur;
nimis exaltatus
rex sedet in vertice -
caveat ruinam!
nam sub axe legimus
Hecubam reginam.

Deplang ranile soartei

Deplang, cu ochii inlacrimati ranile pricinuite de soarta, caci ea dusmanoasa, imi rapeste darurile sale. Este adevarat ca alegi cand parul buclat iti inconjoara fruntea dar de cele mai multe ori ocazia se iveste abia cand ti-e capul chel.

Stateam sus, in culmea fericirii, incununat cu florile belsugului; iar cel ce inflorea odinioara, fericit si multumit, este acum prabusit de pe culmi si lipsit de glorie.

Roata soartei se invarteste eu cobor umilit; altul este ridicat in slavi chiar prea mult. Ca un rege sta pe culme; fereasca-se insa de prabusire caci doar sub ceruri s-a aflat si regina Hecuba.
