Si d’un bon vin quelcun s’est enyvré,
Faut-il pourtant que la vigne on arrache?
Le sainct Escrit seul bon, droit, juste & vray
Faut-il oster pource qu’aux malins fáche?
Non: mais plusieurs ont eu le coeur si láche
De regreter que le col n’eust rompu
Sainct Paul tombé, par ce qu’au vray la táche
Il monstre au doigt que couvrir ilz n’ont peu.

NON EST CULPA VINI

It is not the fault of the wine

L.

Ne vites verte immeritas: tibi crapula tantum
Extirpanda, tui crimen onúsque mali.
Nec divina velis abolere oracula: bellis
Non dant causam, hominum quae ciet impietas.

Do not destroy the vines which have not deserved it. It is only inebriation which needs to be eradicated, the cause and trouble of your evil. Nor do you wish to reject divine words. They are not the cause of wars which men's lack of faith produces.
