Que por redimir la salud no se ha de hazer
cuenta d’el dinero.

Ottava rhima.

Aunque de tardos pies y gran barriga
Huye sus genitales arrancando
Sabiendo el Castor que no ay que le siga
Sino es aquel provecho d'ellos, quando
La priesa de la caça le fatiga.
De cuyo exemplo bien conjeturando
Aprenderas à no estimar tus cosas
Por verte fuera de otras peligrosas.[1]

Notes:

1.  This is based on Aesop, Fables 153, where the same moral is drawn. For the information about the beaver, see Pliny, Natural History 8.47.109; Isidore, Etymologiae (Origines) 12.2.21.
