tetrastichon.

Cordis ut in medio diram gerit iste rubetam,
Quum fluat illius mellis ab ore favus:
Fictus adulator vulpinas palliat artes,
Dum fraudes animi mellea verba tegunt.

As this man carries a dreadful toad in the middle of his heart, while from his lips a honeycomb flows, so the hypocritical flatterer hides his fox-like tricks while his honeyed words cover the plots of his soul.

quatrain.

Enclos au coeur cestuy le crapaut porte
Et tient aux dentz un doux rayon de miel:
Le flateur est de tout pointz de la sorte,
Souz doux parler portant au coeur le fiel.
