tetrastichon.

Orbis ut immensus lympha consistit & igni,
Absque quibus moles tota periret iners:
Sic nisi Fortunae sociata sit inclyta virtus,
Corruit humanum funditus imperium.

As the wide world is made of fire and water, without which the whole inert mass would perish, so, unless Fortune is joined by famous Virtue, human empire collapses utterly.

quatrain.

Comme dessouz la sphere de la Lune
Sans eau & feu lon mouroit promptement:
Si Vertu n’est jointe auecques Fortune,
Pouvoir Royal fine subittement.
