Que se ha de considerar lo que se obra en
error, ̣ en falta, ̣ en demasia.

Ottava rhima.

Pythagoras autor muy conosçido
En solo esto encerṛ su disciplina.[1]
Que demasia, error, ô falta è avido.
Y darse cuenta con esta divina
Sentençia, a todos manda, que el sabido
Uvo en mirar la grulla que camina
Y con la piedra a’l pie buela,[2] y trabaxa
De no Cęsar, ̣ de no yr alta ̣ baxa.

Notes:

1.  Pythagoras. Born in Samos, he emigrated in 531 BC to Croton in South Italy, where he founded a religious/philosophical sect.

2.  Cranes wisely carrying stones as ballast are likened to men of foresight in Suidas (i.e, the Suda), s.v. geranos. Other reasons were suggested by ancient writers for this habit
