De guerre Paix.

Apodeixe.

Voy, Que le heaulme en guerre souvent mis
Tant de fois tinct du sang des ennemis.
En temps de Paix sert de rusche, à la mousche
Contenant cire, & miel doulx à la bouche.

Car aultrement, on ne peut paix acquerre.[1]

Une mesme chose peut avoir deux usa-
ges contraires, comme l’espée porte paix
par craincte & Justice: & porte guerre
par injure, & audace. Pource guerre est
necessaire pour avoir paix. Ce que demon-
stre ung heaulme, en temps de guerre ser
vant aulx armes: en temps de paix aux a-
veilles, miel, & cire.

Que por redimir la salud no se ha de hazer
cuenta d’el dinero.

Ottava rhima.

Aunque de tardos pies y gran barriga
Huye sus genitales arrancando
Sabiendo el Castor que no ay que le siga
Sino es aquel provecho d'ellos, quando
La priesa de la caça le fatiga.
De cuyo exemplo bien conjeturando
Aprenderas à no estimar tus cosas
Por verte fuera de otras peligrosas.[1]
