tetrastichon.

Sicut avis, que nocte solet garrire sub alta,
Quos recreat somnus, sollicitare cupit:
Sic mala lingua malum cupiens effundere virus
Hoc agit, ut bona mens irrequieta gemat.

As the bird that babbles under the deep night desires to disturb those whom sleep refreshes, so the evil tongue desiring to pour out evil poison does so, so that sound minds should moan having lost their calm.

quatrain.

Comme la nuyt le chant de la chouëte
Garde les gens de dormir en repos,
Tout detracteur aux gens de bien souhaite
Nuyre tousjours par ses méchants propos.
