Pontano stars

AD STELLAM

in tenebris, mea Stella, nites, dum sidera pallent,
Et nox ipsa tuo lucida honore placet;
In medio, mea Stella, die sub sole nitescis,
Clarior et per te solque diesque uenit.
Sic es sideribus decus addita matutinis,
Et radiis debent solque diesque tuis.
Sed cur, quae tenebris honor es, decus una diebus,
Cur lumen nobis nocte dieque negas?
Nocte negas foribus clausis, in luce fenestris:
O tenebrae, non iam stellaue luxue mihi.

GIOVANNI GIOVIANO PONTANO
