Que las cosas muy firmes no se pueden
arrancar.

Ottava rhima.

Aun qu’el Oceano se embravezca tanto
Que d’el furor rebiente conševido
Haziendo con braveza a’l mundo espanto,
Y de ti sea Turco el Rhin[1] sorbido
No pasaras de raya el pie, por quanto
Tiempo traxere campo el invenšido
Carlos,[2] que como enzina no se muda á[M]
Aunque la foja el viento la sacuda.

[Marginalia - link to text]Carlos Quinto. Emperador

Notes:

1. áThe Spanish implies that the Turks were threatening the Rhine. The Turks invaded along the Danube and reached Hungary, winning the battle of Mohacs in 1526. When Alciato was writing, they continued to threaten Vienna and Central Europe.

2. áEmperor Charles V led the campaign to recover the lost territory.
