Cest innocent mettant son coeur Dieu,
N’a nul soucy de toute autre richesse:
En luy aussi presomption n’a lieu:
Car haut au ciel est toute sa liesse.
Plusieurs icy errent par leur rudesse,
Prenans les sots pour les povres d’esprit.
Sage est celuy qui renonce & qui laisse
Le monde & soy, pour estre riche en Christ.

BEATI PAUPERES

: Blessed are the poor (Matthew 5:3)

lxiii.

Spiritus haud illi pauper qui desipit, aut qui
Et facit, & loquitur singula ridicule:
Quin puero magis, qui cm sapit, attamen usque
Impuris purum cor habet vitiis.

The spirit of him who knows nothing or who does and speaks things in a ridiculous way is not poor. Why is he who although he knows completely nevertheless has a heart free of impure vices not greater than a boy?
