La pereza.

TERCETOS.

En las virtudes perezea el Esseo,
Y haze como que està mirando al cielo
Y cubre el hacha viendo que es mal echo.[1]
La floxedad debaxo d’el buen zelo,
Y so color de bien el mal deseo
Ni a si ni à otro nunca hizo provecho.

Notes:

1.  ‘cubre el hacha’. Cf. Matthew 5:15, Neque accendunt lucernam et ponunt eam sub modio, ‘nor do men light a candle and put it under a bushel’.
