  • O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable, ever
    waxing and waning hateful life first
    oppresses and then soothes as fancy takes it
    poverty and power it melts them like ice. Fate -
    monstrous and empty, you whirling wheel, you are
    malevolent, well-being is in vain and always
    fades to nothing, shadowed and veiled you plague
    me too now through the game
  • I bring my bare back to your villainy. Fate is
    against me in health and virtue, driven on and
    weighted down, always enslaved. So at this
