tetrastichon.

Quae nimiłm vitis frondescit, falce putanda est,
Ne pereat tandem fertilitate sua:
Sic decet ingenii nimias contundere vires,
Ne nimis ardenti dexteritate ruat.

A vine that brings forth too many leaves must be pruned back, so that it should not perish by its fertility. Thus the over-abundant forces of genius should be broken, so that it does not rush to destruction by its very dexterousness.

quatrain.

Laisser ne faut la Vigne en son ramage,
Sans la couper quand est temps & saison:
Semblablement, tout engin trop volage
Faut reprimer, & soumetre ą raison.
