Lettering

Amor. Dum mihi laeta genas convestit flore iuventa, militiae ingredior castra Cupido tuae. Prodigus, et curae vacuus, temerarius, audax, Omne genus vitae liberioris amo. Nunc me ludus habet, nunc me formosa puella, Nunc fera pro pacta prelia nocte gero, Sed velut herba perit, sic flos cadit ipse iuventae, Foelix qui potuit dicere talis eram. Martin de Vos inventor, 1591, Raphael Sadeler scalpsit et excudit cum privilegio S.C.M.
