Contre un bavard Glouton.[1]

À gosier large, hydeux cry, qui l’air rompe
Bec comme un nez ou pertuisée trompe,
Le Butor peint un grand criard figure,
Qui seulement de gueule, & ventre a cure.

Cest Emblemes’explique soy mesme, par le
Butor oiseau de grand, & long, & large bec,
de grosse & ample gorge, & de cry tel comme
d’un asne rudissant, figurant un gourmand
criard, qui n’a que le cul, & le bec.

Notes:

1.  Unusually, this emblem does not correspond to that found in this position in the 1549 edition. The disparity presumably occurred when the forme was imposed. LINK REQUIRED ‘Petit cuisine ne suffire à deux friandz’ is here found on H3ro.

Captivus ob gulam.

Caught by greed

EMBLEMA XCIIII.

Regnatorque penus, mensaeque arrosor herilis
Ostrea mus summis vidit hiulca labris.
Queis teneram apponens barbam, falsa ossa momordit:
Ast ea clauserunt tacta repentè domum.
Deprensum & tetro tenuerunt carcere furem,
Semet in obscurum qui dederat tumulum.[1]

A mouse, king of the pantry, nibbler at the master’s table, saw oysters with their shells just slightly open. Applying his sensitive whiskers, he nibbled the deceptive bone. But the oysters, when touched, suddenly slammed shut their house and held the thief, caught red-handed, in a noisome prison, a thief who had put himself into a lightless tomb.

Notes:

1.  This poem is a translation of Anthologia graeca 9.86.
