4. de inverno

Tornat Hyperboreis iam Borra gaioffus ab Alpis,

      Manticibus sfoliat qui nemus omne suis.

Flumina deventant vitrum campique biacca,

      Brumaque candelas spargit ubique suas.

Cheta stat in gusso foribus limaca seratis,

      Frigore iam moritur mosca, cigala fame.

Vecchiarella parat coctae convivia rapae

      Nec pransat, nisi sit voda conocchia prius.

Pallidat insomnes oliosa lucerna pedantos,

10

      Tuque malenconica nocte, studente, godis.
