L’ombre suyvant en toutes pars son corps,
Est le patron d’un amy contrefaict.
Car le flateur a langue tous accords
Jusques au temps que son cas est parfaict.
Soit bien, soit mal, il tient tout pour bien faict.
Mais l’amy vray, au mal point ne consent.
Heureux qui a en Dieu amy de faict.
Sur tout les grands ont tel thresor absent.

SOCIOR BLANDE

I am accompanied flatteringly

liii.

Indefessa comes, sed inutilis atraque, gressus
Perpetuis sequitur passibus umbra tuos.
Non secus, apposito qui se mentitur amicum
Ore, tuas laudes ad sua lucra canit.

An unwearying companion but useless and dark, a shadow follows your steps with unceasing tread. Even so he who pretends to be a friend sings your praises with appropriate expression (lit. mouth) for his advantage.
