La desigualdad.


Como à sublime buelo se levanta
El halcon, y en la tierra se apacienta
El anade, y el anser, con el grajo
Ansi con verso Pindaro se asienta
En el supremo çielo, y solo canta
Bacchilides un son muy rudo y bajo.[1]


1.  The first three lines are based on Pindar, Nemean Odes, 3.139-144, where Pindar seems to be obliquely disparaging the style and content of Bacchylides, another poet resident, like himself, at the court of Hiero of Syracuse in the early fifth century BC. See Erasmus, Adagia, 820 (Aquila in nubibus); 1988 (Humi serpere).
