In deprehensum.

Caught.

Iamdudum quacunque fugis te persequor: at nunc
Cassibus in nostris denique captus ades.
Amplius haud poteris vires eludere nostras.
Ficulno anguillam strinximus in folio.[1]

For a long time now I have been pursuing you wherever you flee; but now you are here, at long last caught in our net. You will no longer be able to elude our power - we have gripped the eel tight in a fig-leaf.

Notes:

1.  The rough surface of the fig-leaf made it suitable for gripping slippery objects. See Erasmus, Adagia 395, Folio ficulno tenes anguillam.

La hazienda d’el perdido.

Ottava rhima.

Entre altas sierras y peņascos duros
Lleva sus higos la sylvestre higuera,
Que los cuervos y grajas mal maduros
Comen, sin que aya de ellos valedera
Utilidad a’l hombre. Los impuros
Ansi dispenden con la placentera
Y desonesta gente lo hęredado,
Sin hazer bien ā pobre ni ā letrado.[1]

Notes:

1.  This is based on an idea in Anthologia Graeca, 12.185.
