Might have bloomed with its owner awhile,
And the tear that is wip'd with a little address. . -

Sicut aquae tremulum labris ubi lumen ahenis
Sole repercussum, aut radiantis imagine lunae,
Omuia pervolitat late loca, jam que sub auras
Erigitur, suumique ferit laqueariatecti.

Refleets the beam, that plays upon its face;
The sportive light, uncertain wiere it falls,
Now strikes the roof, now flashes on the walls.
