Une femme est chair de serpent mangeant,
A qui les yeulx font mal, son coeur rongeant
Fort palle, & maigre, & d’espineuse poincte
Tient ung baston. Telle est envie pincte.[1]

Lenvieux s’entretient en son venimeux courage,
voit regret le bien d’aultruy, se consume soy mes-
me, & bat aultruy de langue picquante.


1. This description is taken from Ovid, Metamorphoses, 2.760ff., a depiction of the House of Envy.
