tetrastichon.

Planta rigata velut mediocri crescit ab unda,
Et perit effusa quaeque rigatur aqua:
Sic animus nimio vexatus saepe labore
Concidit, hunc placidus sed labor usque iuvat.

All plants grow if irrigated with slight water, and die if heavily watered: so the spirit, if tortured by too much work, collapses, while peaceful work always helps.

quatrain.

Comme trop d’eau fait les plantes mourir,
Et les nourrist donnée à souffisance:
Trop de labeur fait maint engin perir,
Mais (moderé qu’il soit) donne allegeance.
