tetrastichon.

Cur nova nupta viro coniungit flumina flammis
Frigida cum calidis miscet & illa simul?
An quia coniugiis accedunt omnibus aequ
Cum gemitu risus, cumque quiete labor?

Why does the young bride, married to her man, mix water with fire and hot with cold? Is it not, perhaps, because to all marriages come equally laughter and moans, and work with rest?

quatrain.

Pourquoy est ce que ceste belle dame
Porte le feu & l’eau son espouz,
C’est pour montrer, qu’entre mary & femme
N’est rys sans pleurs, ni playsir sans courroux.
