La Amistad que dura aun despues
de la muerte.[1]

Ottava rhima.

A’l olmo[2] viejo seco y sin verdura
La parra fresca y verde entretexida
Es encubierto exemplo en tal figura
Que al’ amistad durable nos conbida.
Pues no es perfetto amor el que no dura
A l’ menos hasta el yr de aquesta vida.
Bueno serą buscar amigos tales
Que quedos siempre esten į nuestros males.
