La fe de los casados.

Ottava rhima.

Con la de la muger està travada
La diestra d’el varon, y ant’el retoça
Un perro. Esta es la muestra de la honrrada
Fidelidad, que si de amor bien goça
La fruta d'el mançano bien pintada
Estarà entre ellos, pues con tal la moça
Atlanta[1] en la carrera fuè vençida
Y a’l pastor Galatea fuè atrevida.[2]  [M]

[Marginalia - link to text]A Polyphemo.

Notes:

1.  See Ovid, Metamorphoses 10.560ff. for the story: Atalanta would marry none but the man who could beat her at running. Hippomenes tricked her into losing the vital race by throwing down in turn three golden apples given him by Venus.

2.  Galatea, a girl who throws apples at the man she fancies: Vergil, Eclogues 3.64-5.
