Quis valet eloquio munus celebrare Lyaei,
  Forsan ubi vacuus criminis usus erit,
In facie rugas abigit vultumque serenat,
  Prudenter luctus condere signa jubet,
Membra rigat curis et mole peresa laborum,
  Liber tum somnos continuare facit,
Non modice sumptum cerebri velamine rumpit,
  Et simul affectus nil rationis habent.
