tetrastichon.

Fluctibus obsistit validis velut obvia rupes,
Cogit & in propriis currere limitibus:
Sic ratio linguae praescribat verba loquaci,
Ne referat stolidè quae reticenda forent.

As an opposed rock resists the mighty waves and forces them to run in their proper limits, so reason prescribes words to the garrulous tongue, so that it should not say things that it should conceal.

quatrain.

Ainsi que l’eau par la roche desiste
De tirer outre, ou pourroit bien aller:
Raison aussi à la langue resiste,
La refrenant de folement parler.
