Que el olvido es padre de la pobreza.

Ottava rhima.

Quando el Lobo Cerval por hambre pura
Gozando estÓ y comiendo de su empresa.
Por qualquiera occasion ˘ por ventura
Que los ojos aparte de la presa
(Tanto es su olvido y tanta su locura),
Luego busca otra y de la suya cesa.
El que sus cosas dexa nešiamente,
Busca lo ageno y olvida lo presente.[1]

FIN DE LOS EMBLEMAS.
