Favello a voi, che vivete com'ebri
D'un arcano licor sovra la terra,
Ed avete un uncino nei cerebri
Che l'Universo nei suoi moti afferra!
"Noja Letteraria" by Ferdinando Fontana
Busie enquiring heart, what wouldst thou know?
Why dost thou prie,
And turn, and leer, and with a licorous eye
Look high and low;
And in thy lookings stretch and grow?
"The Discharge" by George Herbert
