tetrastichon.

Corporeis oculis si cerni posset honestas,
Et foret illius vultus ubique patens:
Quot secum traheret doctorum corda virorum,
Et quot amatorum cogeret illa choros?

If respectability could be seen with bodily eyes and if her face were everywhere evident, how she would draw the hearts of learned men, and how many bands of lovers would she rule!

quatrain.

Si de noz yeuz corporelz pouvions veoir
HonnestetÚ, que nous serions heureux:
Car maintes gens se metroyent en devoir,
De la servir comme vrays amoureux.
