tetrastichon.

Eraena [=Fraena] requirit equus, quò possit vincere Cervum,
Ast illum facti poenitet inde sui.
Ore ligatus (ait) Quàm sit servire molestum,
Libertas nullo penditur aere gravi.

The horse needs reins to beat the stag in speed, but, after, regrets his deed. Bound by the mouth, he says: “What a burden it is to serve! Liberty is unburdened by any heavy brass.”

quatrain.

Le cheval prent bride, mordz, et chevestre,
Pour se venger plus aisement du cerf,
Puys s’en repend (disant) Qu’il fait bon estre
En liberté, au pris que d’estre serf.[1]

Notes:

1.  Note the punning ‘cerf’ and ‘serf’.
