tetrastichon.

Nomen equi indomiti quaeris? Nomenque puellae,
Quae velut in praeceps iam moritura ruit?
Hic equus est hominis petulans sine lege voluntas,
Cuius ad obsequium stulta iuventa perit.

‘What is the name of the horse wild and free?’ you ask. ‘How do they call the girl, rushing madly, as it were, to her death?’ This horse is the unbridled will of man, which knows no law, in whose service stupid youth rushes to destruction.

quatrain.

Sur ce cheval, qui fol vouloir se nomme,
Jeunesse court sans bride, mordz ne frain:
Ce cheval fait perir maint un jeune homme,
Si de bonne heure il ne change de train.
