Horses fighting, a Rider, and a Swan - after a sarcophagus now in the Uffizi representing the Fall of Phaethon
Life hurries on, a frantic refugee,
And Death, with great forced marches, follows fast;
And all the present leagues with all the past
And all the future to make war on me.
Anticipation joins to memory
To search my soul with daggers; and at last,
Did not damnation set me so aghast,
I'd put an end to thinking, and be free.
The few glad moments that my heart has known
Return to me; then I foresee in dread
The winds upgathering against my ways,
Storm in the harbor, and the pilot prone,
The mast and rigging down; and dark and dead
The lovely lights whereon I used to gaze.
– Petrarch (1304-1374), translated by Morris Bishop (1893-1973)

Apollo with the body of Hyacinthus
drawing, formerly attributed to Nicolas Poussin
O unforgiving thoughts, I pray you: Peace!
Must I contend with Love and Death and Fate
Hot at the walls and pressing at the gate
Whilst inward rebels give me no surcease?
Ah, heart of mine, what treacherous caprice
Has made of you a cruel confederate,
With every eager foeman of my state?
'Tis through your faithlessness my woes increase.
All secret messages of Love you know;
Fortune displays its every pomp to you;
Death shares with you the memory of that blow
Which must these sad remains of me undo;
You give false arms to each fond thought, and so
Yours is the blame for every grief I rue.
– Petrarch (1304-1374), translated by T.G. Bergin (1904-1987)
