Meazza: Extemporanea poesis

Extemporanea poesis by Girolamo Meazza (1690)

All kinds of epigrams here, many of them inspired by Bible passages and scenes or by the festivals of the saints - with lots of distichs. Here's one, De Morte:
Accedit citius mors quam credatur ad omnes:
Ut fallat iuvenes, decipiatque senes.
