Che un dotto non dee biasimar l’altro.

A learned man should not reproach another.


Deh, perche Progne la Cicala, tanto
Crudel rapisci? Se pennuto uccello
Sei tu con l’ali, è anchor’ella altretanto.
Se canti sovra un tenero arboscello,
Et ella ingombra il cielo del suo canto.
Et è grato a chi l’ode e questo e quello.
Dunque lascia la preda, che non dei
Uccider cosa, a cui compagna sei.

Sçavant ne doit contre sçavant

XCIX.

Tu as tort, petit Arondelle,
De prendre ceste joli’ beste,
La cigale, la chanterelle,
Faisant comme toy bruit & feste.[1]
Comme toy est en printemps preste,
Comme toy vole sans nuisance.
Musique estre doit si honneste,

Alciat tanse rudement l’arondelle qui avoit pris
une cigale, pour la porter pour viande à ses petits.
Et toy & elle, dit-il, avez un chant esclatant &
argentin, vous nous venez toutes deux voir en esté,
toutes deux estes hostesses des hommes, vous avez
toutes deux des aisles: en somme vous estes oiseau &
l’un & l’autre. Desfay toy plustost de telle proye, &
la laisse aller. C’est une chose inique & injurieuse,
que Musiciens d’une mesme condition se dressent
embusches les uns aux autres. Vous nous apportez
toutes deux l’esté par vostre venuë, qui est la saison
de toute joye & plaisir.

Notes:

1.  The reference is to the legend of Procne’s metamorphosis into a swallow. See [FALe074]. For swallows catching cicadas, see Aelian, De natura animalium 8.6.
