Martha Marchina

Original Text

Marchina, Martha. Marthae Marchinae virginis Neapolitanae Musa posthuma. 1701, p. 92.


Sacello eidem extra Urbem posito, in Vinea Illust. Iulii Donati: alluditur ad eiusdem Sacellum in Vallicella ab eodem viro erectum.

Super illud: Ego flos Campi, & lilium convallium.1 Distichon.

Colligit in Valle Urbana mea lilia Civis;       Hic florem Campi demetit Agricola.

1 This is a line from Song of Solomon 2:1; flos Campi is often translated as “the rose of Sharon”. Scholars have suggested that the “rose of Sharon” may be any of the following plants: a crocus, a tulip, a lily, or a daffodil.
