Contra los que façilmente se apartan
de la Virtud.

Ottava rhima.

Como à una nao la Remora detiene  [M]
Menospreciados los remos y el viento,[1]
Ansi poca occasion à algunos tiene
A que no acançen [=alcanzen] de virtud aumento,
Como es un feo amor que no conviene,
O por razon de un pleyto un descontento,
Que à los mançebos de indole excelente
Estorva à que su sciencia se acreciente.

Notes:

1.  The sucking-fish (echeneis or remora) was a creature believed by the ancients to have the power of slowing the course of ships to which it attached itself. See Pliny, Natural History 32.1.2-6. He describes it as about six inches long and like a slug. See also [A49a052].
