Que por pequeño que sea el amor da gran
pena. De Theochrito.[1]

RHIMA MEDIA.

La dulce miel el tierno Amor cogiendo
En el dedo mordiendo:le una abeja
Link to an image of this page  Link to an image of this page  [H5r p121] El aguijon le dexa: y el cuytado
Sopla su dedo inchado: y pateando
La tierra, està mostrando: la picada
A Venus, que enojada: mire quales
Herydas tan mortales: le ha causado
Aquel tan laçerado: animalejo.
La Venus con consejo: sonriendo
Acallale diciendo: Mi hijo calla,
Que no puedes culpalla: pues tu imitas
A aquestas aveçitas: que aun chiquito
Das de dolor heridas infinito.

Notes:

1.  3rd-century BC bucolic poet, who may or may not have written the Idylls (19, The Honey Stealer), on which this is based.

DIVES INDOCTUS.

The stupid rich man

Tranat aquas residens precioso in vellere phrixus,
Et flavam impavidus per mare scandit ovem.
Ecquid id est? vir sensu hebeti, sed divite gaza,
Coniugis aut servi quem regit arbitrium.[1]

Phrixus traverses the waters astride the precious fleece and fearlessly rides the golden sheep across the sea. - Whatever can this be? - A man dull of sense, but with rich coffers, whom the whim of wife or servant rules.

Notes:

1.  For the story of Phrixus and the Golden Fleece see Ovid, Fastii 3.851ff.
