Que à el que sus cosas consumị, no se le han
de confiar las agenas.

SEMIOTTAVA.

Por que en la estatua de Medęa hiziste
(Di golondrina) aqueste nido amado?
Que bien en quien maṭ sus hijos viste
Por que en los tuyos tenga mas cuydado?[1]

Notes:

1.  This is based on Anthologia graeca 9.346, a much-translated epigram, on the subject of a swallow that built her nest on a representation of Medea, who slew her children by Jason, leader of the Argonauts, to avenge his unfaithfulness.
