tetrastichon.

Scissa velut rapido navis malè creditur amni,
Quae tamen in fluvii littore tuta manet:
Foemina sic (casti quamquàm suspecta pudoris)
Vix cadet in propriae limite clausa domus.

A damaged ship should not be entrusted to the racing river, even if it stands uninjured on the shore. Just so, a woman (whatever her reputation for chaste purity) will not fall if she is confined to her own house.

quatrain.

La nef rompue est subjecte à naufrage,
Si l’on la fait flotter par déraison:
Femme qui court en maint pelerinage,
Seroit plus seureestant en sa maison.
