tetrastichon.

Navis ut in pelago vix sistitur ampla profundo,
Hanc faciat quamvis anchora iacta gravem:
Saepius in magna curarum mole, videmus
Vel ratione graves sic titubare viros.

As a fat ship can hardly stand still in the deep sea, even though the anchor, thrown overboard, makes it heavy, so it often happens that, when burdened down by a weight of cares, we see even grave men waver in their reason.

quatrain.

Quand la nef est en perilleux naufrage,
L’anchre ne peut bien souvent l’arrester:
Semblablement, voyons maint homme sage
En grand hazard de Fortune douter.
