Que se Ó de agradešer la buena obra.

Ottava rhima.

Insigne en la piedad en alto nido
Sus chicos pollos la cigue˝a cria
Esp’rando en [=un] galardon bien merešido
De aquella casta agradešida Ŕ pia.
Y no se enga˝a, que jamas olvido
Del agradecimiento uvo en tal cria,
Antes a la vejez el hijo a’l padre
Torna Ó criar, y la hija a la madre.[1]

Notes:

1. áSee Pliny, Natural History 10.32.63: cranes care for their parents’ old age in their turn. See also Aelian, De natura animalium 3.23.
