Que en el matrimonio se requiere reverencia.

Ottava rhima.

Quando de Venus en furor se enšiende
La bivora y se allega Ó la ribera
Pidiendo con silvar lo que pretende
A la Muręna faz’ [=haz’] salir Ó fuera á[M]
Que con presteša da lo que ya entiende
Mostrando Ó los casados la manera
Como Ó de ser el thalamo tratado
Con animo de entrambos conšertado.[1]

Notes:

1. áFor the mating of the viper with the moray eel, see Pliny, Natural History 9.39.76; Aelian, De natura animalium 1.50; 9.66. The viper spits out the poison in order to be gentle and safe for the union.
