Ce feu, non feu, fondé dessus un songe,
Soufflé de loups d’habits simples couvers,
Où ces corbeaux aportent leur mensonge,
S’en va esteinct. Car par tout l’univers
Les abus sont presque tous descouvers.
Le sang coulant pur de l’arbre de vie
Suffit pour tous purger & mettre à vie,
Et rendre mort ce feu feinct des pervers.

EX PARVO SATIS.

Enough from a little

vii.

Feralem struxere focum corvique lupique:
Nec tamen, accenso fomite, ligna calent.
Nempe sacra manans Christi cruor arbore, flammas
Obruit, & sterili lumina falsa rogo.

Ravens and wolves built up a wild fire, but although the kindling was lit the wood is not getting hot. Indeed the sacred blood of Christ flowing from the tree puts out the flames and the false light cheated of the sterile pyre.
