In chi facilmente si parte dalla virtł.

Regarding those who easily turn away from virtue.


Come ferma talhor veloce legno
Remora; sprezza insieme arbori e venti.
Cosi alcuni, che al cielo alza lo ingegno,
E salde piume di virtuti ardenti,
Picciol cagion d’un vil guadagno indegno.
O di lascivo amor fiamme cocenti.
Gli fermano nel corso; e folli e nudi
Gli fanno rimaner da i chiari studi.
