El viejo enamorado de la muger moša.

Ottava rhima.[1]

Teniendo fecha >Sophocles postura
Con Arquetippe, y siendo descubierto,
La gente moša reprehender procura,
Con estos motes aquel desconcierto.
Qual la lechuza estÓ en la sepultura,
Qual estÓ el buho sobre el cuerpo muerto,
Tal Arquetippe estÓ con el buen viejo
Sophocles, rešiviendo d’el consejo.[2]
