Te quoque Mauortem aduoco, ne dedigneris
tuos hic promere scorpiones, serpentes,
aspides, viperas, hircos, hoedos, pardos,
canes, cynocephalos, apros, pantheras,
lupos, onagros, equos, hyppelaphos, vulpes,
tuasque cæteras bestias atque feras.

Accipitres, falcones, sabbuteones, strutiones,
gryphos, percas, miluos,
alias rapaces volucres & vespas.
Fucam, draconem, crocodilum,
chroneum, torpelinem, narum,
& alia quæ tibi degunt in aquis.

Ardentibus oculis terribilem,
ignem è naribus efflantem,
magnæ grauitatis ducem,
truculentæ factionis gloriosum principem,
callidum cordis litigantium incensorem,
euaginato gladio omnem tibi vim adaperire potentem,
potentiarum & robustorum omnium inuictum dissipatorem,
soliorum irrefragabilem enersorem,
cui obsistenti resistit nemo,
quem metus & discordia antecedunt,
cui furor iráque ministrant,
maxime omnium formidanda.

trucis aspectus deum, latis incedentem passibus,
robustum, horrificum, ferreum, armisonum, furentem, efferum,
horridum, crudum, homicidam, rabidum, turbidum,
infestum, rapacem, atque funestum.




(lyrics appropriated from Giordano Bruno's "Cantus Circaeus," 16th Century)
