THE ASTROLOGER.

[96]

Indica mihi si nosti omnia. Sciebas qud nasciturus esses, & numerum dierum tuorum noueras?

Iob xxviii.

Tu dis par Amphibologie

Ce qu'aux aultres doibt aduenir.

Dy moy donc par Astrologie

Quand tu deburas a moy uenir?

The astrologer contemplates a pendent sphere. But Death thrusts a skull before his eyes.

Death opens unknown doors. It is most grand to die. -- John Masefield
