Su’l carro della mente auriga siedi,
  O bella donna, e prendi il freno altero,
  Onde vi regga il destrier bianco, e’l nero,
  E drizzi lor ver le celesti sedi.
L’un con rigida man percoti, e fiedi
  Se ribellante traviar dal vero
  Camino, e l’altro con soave impero
  D’ambrosia pasci, se gir dritto il vedi.
