Que el Principe Ó de procurar el provecho
de sus subditos.

Ottava rhima.

Todas las vezes que el viento furioso
A’l espontoso [=espantoso] mar mueve gran guerra
Soccorre a’l navegante el piadoso
Delphin, clavando el ancora en la tierra.[1]
Quan bien parešeria Ó el religioso
Rey, en quien la piedad pura se encierra,
Ser ancora Ó su pueblo de contino
Trayendo esta divisa d’el delphino.

Notes:

1. áThe dolphin was supposed to guide the anchor to a good resting place. It was always friendly to man; cf. [A49a011]. In general, see Erasmus, Adagia 1001, Festina lente.
