If BOREAS can in his own Wind conceive (from Atalanta Fugiens)

by Michael Maier

English version by Anonymous
Original Language Latin

If BOREAS can in his own Wind conceive
An offspring that can bear this light & live;
In art, Strength, Body, Mind He shall excell
All wonders men of Ancient Heroes tell.
Think him no Caeso nor Abortive brood,
Nor yet Agrippa, for his Star is good.
