tetrastichon.

Pallade cur superat sola comitatus Ulisses,
Tot mala Moeonio vel recitante sene?[1]
An quia monstrorum victrix Prudentia semper
Eximit ą cunctis pectora docta malis?

Pallas usa de telle providence
Vers Ulysses, qu’il evita tous maux:
Pour demontrer que Vertu de Prudence
Nous guarantit de tous cruelz assaux.

Notes:

1.  Moenius (or Maeonius) senex: Homer, the old man from Maeonia.
