tetrastichon.

Ut timidum validis catulum contundere nervis
Esse nefas reputat fortis in arma Leo:
Sic animo fractos rigidus prosternere Mavors
Respuit, & fortes viribus usque petit.

As the lion thinks it wrong to try his strength with mighty muscles against the fearful puppy, so tough Mavors [a poetic form of Mars] disdains to knock the weakling coward down and searches always for the strong.

quatrain.

Le fort Lyon ne veult montrer sa force,
Ne sa rigueur, contre le petit chien:
Semblablement noble coeur ne s’efforce
Contre un mÚchant, lasche qui ne vaut rien.
