tetrastichon.

Dentibus à stupa linum secernit acutis,
Haec anus, ut molli stamine membra tegat:
A falso cupiet quisquis secernere verum,
Dentibus invidiae sic lacerandus erit.

This old woman strips the oakum from the flax with her teeth, and covers the limbs with soft thread. Anyone who wishes to separate the true from the false is doomed to be torn thus by the teeth of envy.

quatrain.

Qui le pur lin de lestoupe separe,
Aux dentz du pigne il le faut preparer:
Aux dentz d’envie asprement se prepare,
Qui Verité veult du faux separer.
