Che conviensi, che della donna la bontà & non la bellezza sia divulgata.

It is fitting that the goodness and not the beauty of the woman should be made known.


Venere io son da le mirabil mani
Del dotto Fidia d’un bel marmo finto,
In me vedete atti gentili e humani,
Ch’esser dè Donna a gentilezza accinta.
Fo supra una Testudine dimora,
Perche stia in casa, e sia tacita ogn’hora.
