Reineir van Noort translated this some years ago: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mjfqccjtgjl04 ... lation.pdf

M.
When I was a fighting-man, the kettle-drums they beat,
The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.
