La hazienda d’el perdido.

Ottava rhima.

Entre altas sierras y peņascos duros
Lleva sus higos la sylvestre higuera,
Que los cuervos y grajas mal maduros
Comen, sin que aya de ellos valedera
Utilidad a’l hombre. Los impuros
Ansi dispenden con la placentera
Y desonesta gente lo hęredado,
Sin hazer bien ā pobre ni ā letrado.[1]

Notes:

1.  This is based on an idea in Anthologia Graeca, 12.185.
