Las armas de los Poetas.

Ottava rhima.

Precianse de traer en sus blasones
Algunos aves a’l Dios consagradas. á[M]
Otros ˛ traen serpientes ˛ leones.
Mas estas fieras no sean pintadas
Para mostrar los blandos corašones
De los poetas, en cuyas sagradas
Armas, un blanco cisne es recebido,
Que (como fu├Ę) por rey aun es tenido.[1]

[Marginalia - link to text]Aguilas.

Notes:

1. á‘por rey aun es tenido’. See Ovid, Metamorphoses 2.367ff. for the story of Cycnus, king of Liguria, turned into a swan and inhabiting the marshes and lakes of the plain of the Po (Alciato’s homeland).
