|On the Birth of a Friends Child|
Mark the day white, on which the Fates have smiled:|
Eugenio and Egeria have a child.
On whom abundant grace kind Jove imparts
If she but copy either parents parts.
Then, Muses! long devoted to her race,
Grant her Egerias virtues and her face;
Nor stop your bounty there, but add to it
Eugenios learning and Eugenios wit.
