tetrastichon.

Quae modò mater erat, formam capit illa novercae,
Et quos lacte aluit, conficit illa flagris:
Quisquis ades, miseram Naturae conspice sortem,
Distinguit quam, vix ortus ab interitu.

She who was only now a mother takes on the shape of a stepmother, and kills those with flails whom she nourished with milk. Whoever you are, see the sad fate of nature, whom birth hardly separates from death.

quatrain.

Maratre avons trop soudain rencontrée,
Qui mere estoit nous donnant de son laict:
Le tost sortir si prochain de l’entrée
Nous garde bien de faire ycy long plaid.
