On the Erotic Emblems of Otho Vaenius, a poem by Matthias Corbinot from Middelburg.
You, boy, who want to be a prey for a girl, and you, girl who want to live as a prey for a boy, come and you will see here
Venus' charms and you will read the games and joys of that goddess of Paphos. You will learn what the emotion of true lovers
is and how you should give love in return. The subtle hand of Vaenius expresses this in bronze; Venus gave him all the charms
he has. For you should be sure that she lives in his body and that she has painted herself and her son with her own hands.
Otherwise the goddess could not have chosen anybody that is more suited to express herself and her son. Therefor come, girls
and boys, and take this sacred booklet, look at it, thumb through it and put it in your pocket, if you wish.
