El amor de los hijos.

Ottava rhima.

En medio d’el invierno hizo su nido
Una blanca paloma, y despojada
(Por cobijar sus huevos) del vestido
Muriņ del grave frio trespasada.[1]
Por este exemplo dobla tu gemido
Progne, y tu Colchis, se mas afrontada  [M]
De tal verguenza que un ave os demuestre
Quan grande amor la madre a’l hijo preste.[2]

[Marginalia - link to text]Golondrina y Medea
